NPM WORKSHOP RECAP

The Joliet chapter of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM) presented a very intriguing   learning conference at the ALLEN Organs of Chicago Showroom on February 23, 2020. The NPM is an organization devoting itself to those who support the value of musical liturgy including choir directors, organists, guitarists, pianists, priests, cantors and pastoral liturgists. The workshop featured Dr. Peter Kurdziel, Musical Director at the Basilica of St. Adalbert & St. James Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In addition to presenting keyboard concepts and techniques for all skill levels, the large afternoon audience was given wonderful insight into what appropriately inspires and leads congregations or groups of various sizes. The examples were performed on the Allen three manual G350 and a very informative experience was had by all. A thank you goes out to all those attending, the NPM Joliet Chapter and Dr. Kurdziel.

 

DAVID GRAY!!! A Royal Weekend… Extraordinary Musical Experience

 

The Allen Organ showroom was a magical place for two concerts on October 12 and 13. David Gray delighted the audience with his first performance exclusively for CTOS BRAVO members and the second performance on Sunday for the entire CTOS membership in general. His tuning and set up of the Allen TO-5Q was brilliant as were the entirely different musical programs of both concerts that only a one of a kind genius could prepare and perform. Thank you!
