Herb Buffington's presentation at our October 8th chapter meeting was well-attended by an appreciative group of members and guests. Paul Mosteller, Jeff Binford, Cody Lawyer, and Nathan Peace volunteered to assist Herb in demonstrating techniques from the workshop handout. The session began with an introduction of basic concepts (rhythm, musicality, form, and imitation), building blocks (scales, question and answer musical phrases), and expanded into use of bicinium form, ostinato, canon, toccata, and interpolation. Herb concluded the workshop with a toccata improvisation on Lasst uns erfreuen.
Montgomery's First United Methodist Church presents Andrew Risinger in recital at 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 21st. He'll be playing works by Bach, Franck, Dupre, and Conte. If you were't able to attend Andrew's program in Huntsville a few weeks ago, here's another chance to hear him.
As discussed at our September business meeting, we're introducing a new webpage to assist students and their parents in locating a private music teacher. Chapter members who would like to be included are invited to send the type(s) of lessons they teach (piano, organ, keyboard, etc.) for inclusion on the page. The page will list your name, email address, the type of lessons you indicate you teach, and the city where you teach (Hoover, Vestavia, Tuscaloosa, etc.). The page will be available for public access under the "Substitute Organists" tab on the left of the home page. If you'd like to be included, please email your info to email@example.com by October 31st. Thanks!
