CHAPTER ELECTIONS HAVE BEGUN

The election of officers for the 2018-2020 term has begun.  In accordance with the new Chapter Operating Procedures, candidates for Chapter Office will now serve a term of two years, with Members-at-Large serving a term of four years.  BAGO Chapter voting members will receive a ballot in their email in a Pipings article (please check your spam folders).  Please click the link in Pipings to vote. If you have “opted-out” of receiving Pipings, or don’t have an email on file, you will receive a ballot via US Mail.  All balloting must be completed by 30th.  New Chapter Officers and Members-at-Large will be announced on our website and via Pipings in August. 

If you have any questions, please contact Tish Kilgore.

BUY YOUR MUSIC FROM THE AGO ORGAN LIBRARY!

The AGO Organ Library, housed in the School of Theology at Boston University, has lots of used organ music for sale at relatively inexpensive prices. At the moment our supply is large, and we are offering discounts on Bach Scores, especially if you are a student. The Library is physically open only on Sunday afternoons, but it’s much easier (for you and for us) if you shop online anyway, so visit our website and click on “Music Sales” in the menu along the right side of the picture. There are various categories to look in (individual composers; collections; method books; books about organ music.) Then send us an email with your order (don’t try to call on the phone); We’ll email you back with the total and the shipping cost. We’re not fast (our staff is very tiny, often only 1 person) but we are cheap, very knowledgeable about the repertoire, and only charge necessary shipping costs. Our email is orglib@bu.edu.

Happy music hunting,
Carl Klein, DMA
