From the Dean's Corner
Greetings from the Dean’s Corner. I’m writing with excitement as this month we see two great opportunities for music-lovers of all ages and skills.
Both of these events have more information about them on the programs page of our website: charlotteago.org/programs
The Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza event which was rescheduled is set for this Saturday, March 5, at Covenant Presbyterian. PPP’s are fun events because kids get to encounter the pipe organ and play it—perhaps for the first time. In addition, they learn the inner workings of the instrument, and they get to hear it in its grandeur as played by a professional musician. I’d like to express our chapter’s thanks to Rob Dicks and the good people of Covenant for allowing us to use their facility and three organs for this event.
On Saturday March 26, please plan to attend the Hickory Organ Crawl. This all-day affair will feature stops at five delightful organs in our neighbor to the north, Hickory, North Carolina. Best of all, the event includes chauffeured transportation from the Charlotte and Huntersville areas: you only need to park your car at one of two convenient locations, and the motor coach will pick you up, drive you to Hickory, drive you around Hickory, take us all to a delightful dinner, and then bring us back. Tickets are available online, and a generous sponsor has offered a number of half-price need-based sponsorships. If you prefer not to use the motor coach, or if you wish to apply for a sponsorship, please contact Zach Bowyer, at email@example.com. We hope you will join us for this fun event.
Throughout this entire pandemic, the Charlotte AGO has continued to request that its members and guests to be good guests of whichever church or facility is hosting us. To that end, we are asking our members and guests to follow any policies regarding masks which may still be in effect even though Mecklenburg County has relaxed the county-wide Covid protocols. Local churches are free to make their own decisions, and as guests of that church, we are to follow those policies. Thank you for understanding.
Dean, Charlotte AGO
