Chapter Pays it Forward with Loan of Digital Organ
A number of years ago, SNC:AGO member Doris Francis donated a digital instrument to Epiphany Episcopal Church in southeast Las Vegas. Earlier this year, the church installed a Rodgers 940 3-manual organ in their sanctuary and with the suggestion and urging of assistant director of music and SNC:AGO secretary, Kathi Colman, the church donated the previous instrument to the chapter.
As part of its mission to foster a thriving community of musicians who share their knowledge and inspire passion for the organ, the SNC:AGO loaned the instrument to an aspiring organist and one of our POE students, Brenna Schelin.
The loan allows Brenna to keep and practice on the instrument for five years, expiring at about the time that she will graduate from high school. Upon its return to the chapter, the SNC:AGO plans to once again lend the organ to another student organist.
Congratulations to Brenna and thank you to Doris. Cathi and to Epiphany Episcopal Church.
