All Columbus Chapter programs are open to the public and free of charge, unless otherwise indicated. We hope you will join us!
The churches at which we hold our programs are very generous with our chapter in terms of resources and building usage. To allow them to recoup some of the costs attendant to hosting us, churches may choose to take a freewill offering during our programs. Please remember that these programs are all open to the public and always free to our members. You are under no obligation to contribute to the offering unless you are moved to do so. Our thanks go out to the many churches and other venues who have so generously supported the work of our chapter.

Workshops: Quality choral music for small ensembles
Roundtable discussion - Criteria for choosing choral music
St. John’s Episcopal Church, 700 High Street, Worthington
Our recent programming survey revealed that a significant number of members who work with choirs wish advice on selecting music that works well with smaller vocal ensembles without sacrificing quality. A wide variety of examples will be demonstrated and a handout provided. A roundtable discussion will follow centering on the criteria one might use in choosing appropriate music for choirs of all sizes. Refreshments will be provided the half-hour preceding each workshop.
Monday, January 20 – 7:30 p.m.
St. John’s Lutheran Church, 6135 Rings Road, Dublin
Favorite and accessible organ music for worship services will be the focus of this Member’s Recital. This will be a sharing occasion, a chance to hear something new and expand one’s service playing repertoire. A reception will follow.
Video excerpts featuring famous organists past and present as well as some of the world’s great instruments will be shown and a potluck supper will offer an all too rare occasion for fellowship and conversation with colleagues.
Sunday, March 16 – 3:00 p.m.
Beneﬁt Student Recital
All Saints’ Lutheran Church, 6770 North High Street, Worthington
Following our last season’s successful student recital, we shall again provide a stage for tomorrow’s organists and for some adults continuing their study as well.
