Message from the Dean
FROM THE SUB-DEAN...
About 70 members and guests were in attendance at our meeting at Christ Church on Tuesday, November 14. The program was presented by Malcolm Matthews, a 17 year old student who has studied organ since the age of 10. Most recently, Malcolm won the 2005 Southeastern Region IV Young Artists' Competition. Mr. Matthews' interpretation and articulation of his selected literature was a delight to all in attendance. We look foward to more great accomplishments by this fine young artist. The featured pieces are listed below. In addition, the chapter wishes to thank Christ Church and John Gilbert for hosting us at Christ Church and allowing us to showcase the magnificent Goulding and Wood Organ in the rear gallery. A lovely artist's reception was held downstairs to conclude the evening.
A reminder that there will be no meeting in the month of December. Our next meeting will be January 23 at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, Greenville. Ryan Hebert and students from the Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities will present the program. This date is later than our usual 2nd Tuesday so that we can have the benefit of hearing from some of the talented students at the SCGSAH.
On behalf of the Greenville AGO Officers, I wish for each of you a blessed and holy Advent, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

| FROM THE EDITOR...
Communication with our members is the chief goal of this monthly publication. It is to this end that you can greatly assist the process. Your help will determine, to a great degree, the success of the Orgel News Line. Do you have news for the chapter concerning members, programs, positions available, etc? If so please send them to me whenever you get a chance. These should include the people involved, date and location, any ticket information, and (if you wish) a short description of approximately 50 words. The deadline for inclusion is generally the 15th of the month for the next issue. Do you have ideas for short articles? Feel free to send them as well.
Another means of communication which is becoming of great value for quick or urgent news is e-mail. Does the chapter have your current and most frequently accessed address? If not, please make sure Phil Lehman has that information. If you’re not sure, send him your information. His e-mail address, along with the other officers and coordinators are listed on the front of this and every edition of the Orgel News Line.
Finally, the Greenville Chapter now has a presence on the web. Check out Greenville AGO’s new web-site at: Http://www.agohq.org/chapter/greenvillesc. This site is still in its infancy and much work is yet to be done. Your input here is also welcomed.
Thanks for all of your help in making our AGO chapter as active as possible. Send your news!
