Donations will be received at the door for Charlie’s Place, which feeds, clothes and provides medical assistance for the homeless.Also dedicated to the Glory of God and in loving memory of the Charleston Nine, Captain and Mrs.I am here to serve each of you and help move forward our common visions for the AGO and the profession of ‘organist.’ In this month’s issue of ‘The American Organist,’ our chaplain, Don Saliers, eloquently discusses the condition of authentic worship as exemplified by the late Robert Shaw. Even better, come to our chapter meetings to share your ideas!Saliers’ final sentence is challenging: “I cannot help but fiercely desire a rebirth of what might make music and worship revelatory and healing again in our present age.’ Let’s accept this challenge. One of my passions for our Potomac Chapter has been to work collaboratively with our other two local chapters, Northern Virginia and DC. Several of our 2015-2016 meetings will be joint meetings with No Va and DC.And, of course, we want to grow our membership and increase our relevancy for all who join us.You have elected a dedicated Board representing both those with many years of experience and one just beginning a career as organist.
