Dean’s Column Larry Wheelock

Happy New Year! On behalf of the Officers and Board of the American Guild of Organists — Milwaukee Chapter I wish you a pleasant and fruitful new year. We are starting 2016 with a terrific program: Charles Callahan will present a recital and a workshop at Gesu Church on January 15th and 16th (7pm and 10:30am respectively.) This promises to be an interesting performance and class; different to many of the things we have offered in the past and I sincerely hope you will take advantage of both and then let us know what you think about them. I mean it. We are also starting 2016 with very shaky finances. I promised to get you a letter about that, but life interfered. Why not get 2016 off to a good start with a donation to our general fund? You can donate online or use the mail; whichever you prefer, but, by all means, help us out if you possibly can. We have big plans for this year and the upcoming ones, including planning for a Regional Convention, but we mustn’t neglect our programming needs in the meanwhile. We move to the Anglican Cathedral (Cathedral Church of All Saints) for our February program: Share and Share Alike. This event has been among our most popular programs in previous years and I always get something I can use from the program. Please put it on your schedule now and plan to explore and learn with us. See agomilwaukee.org for details on each of these programs. I’ll be there; I hope to see you too!

AGO College Scholarships The American Guild of Organists announces the start of the application period for the 2016-2017 Ronald G. Pogorzelski and Lester D. Yankee Memorial Scholarships. These are the largest monetary scholarships awarded by the Guild each year to individual organ students. They are made possible by the generosity and vision of the late Messrs. Ronald G. Pogorzelski and Lester D. Yankee. The scholarships support the education of talented young organists who are dedicated to making significant contributions to the field of organ playing. Applicants are expected to have existing talent and be able to demonstrate achievements in the field of organ playing along with an expressed commitment to post graduation teaching, performing, or other serious endeavor with respect to the organ. Each student applicant must also demonstrate a verifiable financial need to be eligible to receive a scholarship. Six scholarships are presently awarded each year with a total distribution of $60,000 in scholarship funds annually. Four scholarship awards of $7,500 each are awarded to an incoming college freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior, as well as two graduate awards of $15,000 each, one for a student beginning a master’s degree program and one for a student in the second year of a master’s degree program. The scholarships are renewable annually if requirements are met. For the 2016–2017 academic year, the AGO will begin accepting online scholarship applications on January 1, 2016 from qualified students entering their freshman year in college and starting their first year of graduate study. Complete details of the Pogorzelski-Yankee Memorial Scholarships can be found on the AGO website, https://www.agohq.org/education/pogorzelski-yankee-memorial-scholarships.
