AGO Member Jan Kraybill Nominated for Three Grammy Awards

Jan Kraybill writes: I was absolutely thrilled that my most recent album, the second solo recording on the Kauffman Center’s Julia Irene Kauffman Casavant organ, has been nominated for three GRAMMY awards, including Best Classical Instrumental Solo, a very high honor indeed.
