At 7:30 pm on Monday, April 22, we travel to Sacred Heart Catholic Church – 139 Third St. NE – New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663. ln a change from the previously listed program, we will hear a recital by Carolyn Wallace and Beth Fragasse, organists. Charles Kegg will be on hand to answer questions and talk about his newly installed instrument. Afterward, the instrument will be open to those who wish to give it a try.

NOTEWORTHY NEWS:
One of our past Canton AGO scholarship recipients, Mark Indorf, recently played organ and directed his church choir at Notré Dame Cathedral, Paris, which is celebrating its 850th year. What an honor to be asked to provide the musical leadership for worship at such a notable cathedral! To endorse a recent email quote from W. Robert Morrison: “Ohio boy makes good, I’d say.” Congratulations Mark!
