Advent-Christmas Members Recital: December 4, 201

Member recital.jpg

Our annual Holiday Season program has become one of the most popular events in our Southern Nevada AGO Chapter's Recital Series. Normally, these programs have showcased organ music or organ music with instruments of the Advent-Christmas season. This year's program is planned to showcase choirs with organ accompaniment as well as some of the solo organ literature.

We are especially grateful this afternoon to the members of the four featured choral groups, their directors and their accompanists for helping to make this program attractive and a success.
