It is always an honor to be invited to perform for chapter concerts and regional and national conventions of the American Guild of Organists. I'll always remember this one, as I dislocated one of my fingers in early May. I didn't have use of that finger until two weeks before the performance!

Ecumenical Service
With the national convention of the American Guild of Organists coming to Los Angeles, I was honored that Coventry Choir was invited to join with Kirk Choir of Pasadena Presbyterian Church to lead this ecumenical service. Hanan Yaqub, Greg Norton and I planned the service, including the premiere anthem by Williametta Spencer, and 1000 organists attended and belted out those hymns.
