We’re giving away organ music!

Are you looking for some new organ repertoire? Would you like to browse through boxes of organ and choral music and take what you like for free? Do you have repertoire to share, perhaps a set of anthems your choir no longer sings or a book of organ voluntaries that are not applicable to your current situation and want to find it a new home?

Join members of the Pennsylvania Northeast AGO chapter for a Music Swap at Church of Christ Uniting, 190 South Sprague Avenue in Kingston, on Sunday, October 11, 2015 between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Please spread the word and invite organists, piano teachers, choir directors, etc.

Chapter Members and friends are invited to dinner at a local restaurant after the Music Swap. Please RSVP by October 4. Call Raphael Micca, Dean, at 570-301-9253 or email dean@agopane.org.
