Suffolk, NY May 29, the chapter presented a recital by Donald K. Fellows to recognize scholarship award winners for 2016. The program—played on the III/33 Wicks/Peragallo organ (rebuilt and enlarged in 1992) at Ss. Phil­­ip and James R.C. Church—was created by the recitalist to engage both the experienced listener and those attending their very first organ recital. The chapter established its scholarship program in 2004 to support and encourage the training of new organists. Two of the scholarships are fund­ed through generous donors, the Peragallo Organ Company and Sebastian M. Glück of Glück Pipe Organs. The third, a beginning organ student scholarship, is funded by members and friends of the chapter. As much as $3,000 is available annually: up to $1,000 each for the Sebastian M. Glück College Scholarship and for the Peragallo Organ Scholarship for secondary students (grades 6–12), and $1,000 in Suffolk chapter awards for beginning organ students. Joan Daly-Lewis (scholarship chair) directs the program, arranging for publicity, accepting applications, and engaging judges to adjudicate the competition each year. We are grateful for the participation of our expert judges: Mark Engelhardt; Thomas Boh­lert, FAGO; and Ray Henderson, CAGO, each of whom provides scholarship applicants with concrete and useful feedback on their playing, to guide their future studies. During the recital’s intermission, this year’s award winners were introduced and presented with their awards. Scholarships for beginning organ students were awarded to Remy D’Esposito, Patrick Hines, and Juliet Rand. The Peragallo scholarship was awarded to Matthew Luca and Dorothy Pierre. The Glück scholarship was presented to Theresa Bissex. Following an inspirational recital played by Donald K.

Holland, MI Last September, the chapter met at Grace Episcopal for a presentation by host Steve Jenkins titled “Playing the Notes Not on the Page.” Jenkins’s experience playing many styles of music, including jazz and rock, gives him a flexibility about improvising that is the envy of many. His practical and approachable introduction to improvising included helpful and encouraging ideas for how we too can begin to improvise.

• In October, Kola Owolabi (University of Michigan), who was in Holland to perform at Third Reformed Church, presented a practical and useful session on “Preludes and Postludes: Some Hidden Gems.” He introduced members to lesser-known repertoire ideal for service playing by playing excerpts, using recordings, and giving spoken explanations.

• In November, the chapter, along with St. Francis Cath- ­olic Church, cosponsored a concert by the Mainz Boys Choir, which was on a tour of the Midwest. An excited hometown crowd came out in good number to hear them (and the director declared that we were a much better audience than Chicago!).

• In February and March, members attended the inaugural organ recitals at Hope College’s new Jack H. Miller Center for the Musical Arts. February’s recital by professor Huw Lewis on the new Casavant was preceded by dinner at a local restaurant for members attending. The March recital, with visiting organist David Baskeyfield, was preceded that day by lunch with the artist.

• Also in March, new member Micah Vanderhill, a physical therapist, talked with our chapter about posture at the organ. He showed exercises for improving and strengthening our posture at the instrument, and provided helpful explanations and diagrams of how our bodies work and what happens when we play the organ. This excellent presentation was declared by one member of the board to be the most useful and interesting workshop session on playing the organ that she had ever heard!

March 4, the chapter met at Lakewood United Methodist Church, North Little Rock, for its dinner meeting (host organist Barbara Lusk). Afterward, attendees adjourned to the sanctuary for a recital featuring seven members.

Also, a new composition by Don Verkuilen—a toccata based on the hymn tune Gather Us In—was premiered. He wrote the toccata for the AGO’s new-music competition designed specifically to produce music based on hymn tunes written after 1960. The toccata was a competition winner and was scheduled to be played by Monica Czausz at the 2016 AGO National Convention in Houston.
