I am pleased to present a workshop titled "Voices in Community:  The Organ and Congregational Singing" for the Southwest Regional Convention of the American Guild of Organists. 

A pipe organ is a community of voices: each pipe possesses unique physical and sonic characteristics, and each one’s voice is needed to create a beautiful, musical whole. The instrument is thus a metaphor for diverse communities in song, as well as being the perfect leader and accompanist of that song. This workshop will explore keyboard techniques necessary to effectively lead and accompany congregational singing, in a wide variety of musical styles, to enable our communities to sing with enthusiasm and understanding.
