Just got done telling someone how much I love snow; that’ll teach me. It is the indirect cause—the snow, not my telling, I hope—of the postponement of Alan Morrison‘s premiere of my solo organ piece Two Meditations on Freu dich sehr, commissioned by Abington Presbyterian Church for the rededication of its organ.
Due to the extended power interruption at the church this past week, the premiere and all the events surrounding that concert could not go on this Sunday, February 16, as was originally planned.
Everything’s been moved to Sunday, March 16, 2014:
10:00 Rededication Worship Service with Ethel Geist, organist
4:00 Rededication Recital with Alan Morrison, organist, which includes Two Meditations
So it isn’t because of the snow that’s supposed to hit here in (as I write) ten hours, but because of the past storms that knocked out electricity for multiple days. I can imagine all the effort it takes to produce events on this scale—including, I’m guessing, last-minute prep for the instrument—so with a big thank-you to Alan (with an incredibly busy schedule) and to John Sall, Ethel Geist, the organ rededication committee at APC, and to the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, we’ll give it a go on Sunday, March 16th!
