Welcome To Knox AGO
Hello friends! It is good to write to you from our working website. It has been a great start to the summer and Deborah Sanders and I have been working with the program committee on the new programs for the 2014-2015 year. I certainly apologize for the inconvenience of the website; we all hope the problems have been corrected and you will be able to access all the information you need.
Your new AGO Board for the 2014-2015 year is Deborah Sousa (Dean), Deborah Sanders (Sub-dean), Stephen Aber (secretary), Brian Daniel (treasurer), Karl Jacob (Registrar), Cynthia Moses and Bradley Rule (Auditors), EJ Choi, Fred Pogue and Terrye Danner (Members at Large).
I hope that everyone has been able to access the new membership through the ON system on the National AGO website. We can all register through the website and also make donations to the Knoxville AGO chapter, the John Brock Education Fund, sign up for the yearly program dinners, and other necessary information.
Our first program of the 2014-2015 year will be on Monday, September 8th at 7:30 p.m. at St. John"s Lutheran Church on North Broadway. The program is entitled, "Literature for Organ and Solo Instruments" and will be presented by Knoxville AGO members and local soloists. We currently have seven organists and soloists preparing works. Dinner will be provided at St. John's Lutheran beginning at 6:30 p.m. for a fee of $12.
Other programs this fall will be the John Brock 50th Celebration on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 17 and 18, at the Cox Auditorium on the UT campus; the November 3rd program featuring Dr. Mel Pringle and a wonderful choral program on Monday, Dec. 15th featuring the Tennesse Chamber Chorus at Church of the Ascension. More information and details on these program and the programs for the spring will be updated after the AGO Board meeting on August 11th.
Thank you so much for your support of the Knoxville AGO. We are an active and vibrant community and I am very excited to serve as your Dean for the coming year.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns!
