Wilmington Chapter

Last updated: February 3, 2017 at 18:50 pm

Message from the Dean 

Greetings from the Wilmington (North Carolina) Chapter! Founded in 1989, the Wilmington Chapter currently has a growing membership. While the majority of its members live in the greater Wilmington area, the chapter spans a large geographic area that includes southeastern North Carolina and portions of eastern North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina. The Chapter meets monthly September through June. Each meeting includes a program which often is a concert performed by chapter members for the community, a lecture on a topic of interest or a guest artist recital. Many meetings feature a catered meal. The Wilmington chapter prides itself on presenting many concerts and events for the greater community. Many years, chapter members present a Hymn Festival for the Church Year, and a members’ organ recital. Chapter members also form the AGO Chamber Choir which performs a concert of the works of a major composer many years with chamber orchestra. The 2010 choral concert featured works of Benjamin Britten. Historic Wilmington, North Carolina, is located on the Southeastern coast of North Carolina and is home to many fine pipe organs. Builders represented include Austin, Bozeman, Casavant, Estey, Goulding & Wood, Noack, Pilcher, Schantz, E. M. Skinner, Taylor and Boody, and Visser-Rowland. For more information on the Wilmington Chapter, please contact Justin Smith, Dean, at cjs@alumni.wfu.edu.

Newsletter

Greetings from the Dean

Dear Members and Friends of the Wilmington AGO,

I must begin this month’s newsletter with many thanks on behalf of the chapter to our friends Robert and Lisa Nichol for hosting us again this year for the third time for our annual Epiphany party.  Their beautiful home was decorated for the season, and as always, we had a wonderful evening of laughter, good food, and time to relax and tell stories and enjoy each other’s company.  We missed many of you at this event and I understand that there were quite a few conflicts with this date due to it being on Epiphany.  Many other chapters have their Epiphany parties on January 6 proper every year, but this was the first time we tried this date.  In the week leading up to the party, I heard from several of you about services or other obligations.  The program planning committee will certainly keep these concerns in mind this summer as future programs are being planned.  I do encourage you now, since these conflicts have come up recently, to plan to attend the program planning committee meetings when they are held so you will have a say in the dates, times, and topics of our meetings.  Your input is extremely important to chapter leadership, and we do not want to have programs that consistently conflict with your prior engagements, including your church positions.  There will always be issues with scheduling because of everyone’s busy schedules, but we hope to accommodate as many people as possible.

I am hopeful that our return to a Tuesday evening meeting for this month will be helpful for many of you, though I know Tuesday’s are also difficult for some due to rehearsals.  While we normally meet on the second Tuesday of the month, we decided to move it to the third Tuesday this time due to Valentine’s Day falling on our normal meeting night.  With those scheduling changes in mind, this month’s meeting is simply not to be missed!  We have a wonderful program planned that features the distinguished choral conductor and educator Jerry Cribbs.  Most of you certainly know Jerry, as he is a long-time chapter member, but you will find his bio later in this newsletter.  I learned new things about him when I read it, so I encourage you to take a look as well.

Jerry is going to lead everyone in attendance in a choir rehearsal, just as he would lead one of his choral groups in a typical practice session.  The idea is similar to an organ masterclass in that we are learning from a person at the top of his career, but all of us will be participants together at the same time and we will learn best practices as they happen.  For those of us who are not as experienced in choral conducting and are called on to conduct every Sunday, often while playing the organ, this will be a great chance to experience first-hand and take notes on what expert choral conductors are doing to train their choirs most effectively.  In addition, if you are the organist, but not the choral director at your church, please still plan to come and learn more about something we are all likely to be called on to do occasionally as church musicians.  Also, feel free to invite your choral director so they can also enjoy this presentation.  They do not have to be members of the AGO to attend.  Please come prepared to participate, learn, and enjoy working with Jerry.  He expects questions, so please bring any questions you have been dying to ask!

The program is scheduled for 7:30 PM on Tuesday, February 21 at Grace United Methodist Church (401 Grace Street) in downtown Wilmington.  Our meeting/rehearsal will take place in the fantastic Davis Music Suite.  The door to this area of the church is the far left (if you are facing the back of the church) red double door right off the back parking lot, off Walnut Street.  To reach the door, walk through the open gate.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the usual location for our dinners at the church was not available.  While the board understands that some people may not have time to come early and enjoy a community meal, we invite anyone interested to join us at 6:00 PM at Panera Bread in front of Independence Mall (3506 Oleander Drive) for a Dutch treat dinner together before heading downtown to the program at Grace.  No reservations are required for either the dinner or the program.  I hope to see you at both!

Justin Smith

Organ Academies – Indiana University

Dear Colleagues,

Greetings from the Jacobs School of Music Organ Department! I write to make you aware of three summer programs that will be held on our campus this-coming summer with the hope that you will share this information with anyone who may be contemplating a week of continuing education this summer in the fields of organ performance and/or sacred music.

European AGO Spring Meeting 2017

A Message & Opportunity from Lani Beuerman

Some of you may know that my husband and I lived in Germany for 30 years prior to moving to North Carolina.  During that time I was a founder and first dean of the European Chapter of the AGO in 1979.  Even though Lisa Nichol and I never met before moving here, we corresponded as she was also a member during the time she lived in Belgium.

Because of their widespread membership throughout numerous countries, the chapter does not have regular monthly meetings but, instead, holds a spring organ tour each year in one of them. You may have read about them in TAO.  This coming year it will be in the U.S.A.  Since it is on the east coast, some of you might be able to participate.  Lani Beuerman

European AGO Spring Meeting 2017

Washington, D.C., April 17 – 22, 2017

TIME FOR AN UPDATE!

Dear Friends,

As I’ve worked to arrange the Spring Meeting for the European Chapter in Washington, D.C., next April, I’ve had the occasion to meet some of the most wonderful people! Organists, Music Directors, Pastors, Organ Builders, hotel and restaurant people, officials and members of local AGO chapters…entirely without exception, these people have been excited to learn that the European Chapter is coming to town, willing to go out of their way to help, and have offered their instruments, their churches, and their ideas to help make our week a fantastic experience. So I’d like to begin this update by thanking you, the members of the European Chapter, for giving me the opportunity to do this work for you. It’s been educational, interesting, and very fun. I’m so much looking forward to seeing how it all turns out next April!

And we have an Itinerary!! Have a look at the bottom of this update. As I’m sure each of you understands, this Itinerary is still a draft at this early date! Much can happen between now and April to change individual items on this program. But in the case of each church, each organ (12 of them!), each venue…the resident organists and officials in charge have been contacted, and each has agreed to host us in the timeframe shown in this program. This is one of the core activities of our week…seeing and playing interesting, American-built organs…and I’m very excited how this has all come together. Surely you will be thrilled to get your fingers (and feet) into these wonderful instruments!

Another core activity of the week will be the chance to meet members of AGO chapters in the USA, and this Itinerary  gives us the opportunity to mix with members of four AGO chapters…one in the university town of Winchester, Virginia (home to Shenandoah University) and three chapters in the D.C. area, our “tri-chapters” (the D.C. Chapter, the Northern Virginia Chapter, and the Potomac Chapter in the Maryland suburbs of D.C.). A couple of these chapters already have begun publicizing this visit by the European Chapter, and we’ve seen real interest and excitement on the part of local AGO members.

We are working, as well, to offer participants other enriching experiences. Setting up the meals has been a challenge, especially since I’ve wanted to keep the costs down. Having lived in Europe for 11 years, I know that great food can be had there for very reasonable prices. It’s a bit more difficult in the U.S. to find places where large groups can experience wonderful meals at modest cost. But I believe the culinary experiences we will be offering during the week might just tickle your palate and leave you sated without doing great violence to your wallet. That’s the objective, at least!

But the most enriching experience of the week? Why, of course, that would be spending time with good, close friends in the European Chapter, renewing acquaintances with American members of the Chapter who are returning to join us in the D.C. Spring Meeting, and, of course, making new friends here in the USA! I mean…the organs are great, yea, and who doesn’t like to eat??! But renewing old friendships and making new ones, especially among persons in our elite little corner of the professional world (fellow organists and organ lovers)…that’s the best! And there will be plenty of opportunity for that on a bus trip through the Shenandoah Valley, at meals, at each venue, or just hanging out at the hotel! Good friendships are immeasurably important…but they need to be nourished. We’ll be doing plenty of that at the Spring Meeting!

It’s wonderful that, as of today, we have 40 persons signed up to attend. Our room block at the Marriott Hotel in Tyson’s Corner has been expanded to 30 rooms, and 25 of these already have been reserved by individual attendees. And it’s still early, but the sooner we know whether you plan to attend, the better! Please don’t delay contacting Judy and me if you’re thinking seriously about attending.

The deadline to register for the Spring Meeting is January 31, 2017.

So if you’re still undecided and haven’t yet committed, you still have a while to think about it, but please tell us what you’re thinking. The hotel block will fill, and by late January, the opportunity will have passed you by.

Official registration for the Spring Meeting will take place in the lobby of the Marriott Hotel from 4:00 – 6:00 pm, Monday, April 17. As in the past, if an attendee already is a member of the European Chapter, there is no registration fee. Non-members will be asked to pay $30 (or 30 Euros) to register for the Spring Meeting, or they may become a member of the European Chapter, including the category of Chapter Friend, for $20 (or 20 Euros), in which case they will be excused from a registration fee to participate in the Spring Meeting.

Participants are expected to pay for their own lodging, meals and transportation during the Spring Meeting. As has been our practice in the past, the cost for the chartered bus will be split between the participants and the European Chapter. The many additional costs of the Spring Meeting are covered by the European Chapter.

About two months before the Spring Meeting, the participants will be informed as to his/her share for the bus, as well as the amounts for the Opening and Closing dinners. The participants will be asked to pay for the bus and dinners in cash at registration between 4:00 and 6:00 in the Marriott Hotel lobby.

The European Chapter 2017 Spring Meeting in DC promises to be a very interesting, enjoyable, and rewarding experience, professionally and personally. Please consider joining us! Roger

2016-2017 Programs

  • Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 7:30 PM, Dinner at Panera Bread (at 6:00 PM); Program at Grace United Methodist Church, 401 Grace Street, Wilmington: Workshop on leading choral rehearsals by Jerry Cribbs. Jerry is well-known throughout the state as one of the best choral conductors and choir trainers of his generation. Presently he serves as conductor of the Cape Fear Chorale and the chancel choir at Grace United Methodist Church. In this event, which features dinner before the meeting for any interested members, Jerry will lead chapter members through a mock choir rehearsal in which we can learn effective choral rehearsal techniques for various situations. By experiencing an actual rehearsal (those in attendance will be the “choir”) we can see how Jerry runs a rehearsal first-hand, with opportunities for questions and comments.
  • Tuesday, March 14, 2017, 6:30 PM, St. James Parish, 25 S. Third Street, Wilmington: Anthem Reading Session (featuring music for various liturgical seasons), led by chapter members. This program promises to provide a lot of creative and fun music planning ideas. Chapter members have volunteered to bring anthems related to liturgical seasons, baptism and communion, as well as music for the small choir. They will lead us in singing through the pieces. Plan to make notes on what will work for your own choir! Dinner will be served in the Great Hall, followed by the program in the Choir Room.
  • Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 6:30 PM, Home of Herman and Sara Bryant: Pre-concert discussion and presentation on music being played at the May program. This program will be a bit different when compared to our usual events. We will enjoy dinner (provided by Sara Bryant) and chapter members making short presentations and leading discussions about the music that we will hear at our May chapter program. If you would like to speak about a piece or pieces that will be played, please contact Justin Smith.
  • Friday, May 12, 2017, 7:30 PM, First Presbyterian Church, 125 S. Third Street, Wilmington: Recital by 2014 NYACOP winner Jonathan Rudy. This organ concert, sponsored and produced by our chapter, crowns our program year with an evening of beautiful organ literature on the stunning 1928 E.M. Skinner organ at First Presbyterian. Mr. Rudy has won and been a finalist in several organ competitions over the past several years and presented a featured recital at the 2016 AGO national convention in Houston. He studied organ in graduate school with Janette Fishell and Bruce Neswick, while also teaching at Indiana University. Please invite friends and family!
  • Friday, June 9, 2017, 6:30 PM, Home of Bob Norem and Carl Salisbury: Summer Social. Join us for a great time relaxing and enjoying each other’s company as we close out the program year. This event features a potluck dinner and time to talk to friends and colleagues in our chapter
