Message from the Dean 

Randall (Randy) C. Sheets, dean

On Thursday, September 20, we will begin our 2018-2019 program year with a gathering St. Paul’s Episcopal. Faythe Freese, organist at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, will join us to give a presentation on “Sure-fire Practice Techniques.” Dr. Freese’s presentation will be preceded with pot-luck heavy hors d’oeuvres and beverages.  Our officers are planning a rich year of social events and programs for everyone from the new organist to seasoned veterans. New members are always welcome!
