in our chapter will appreciate each other so much be'er this year
as we organize and present a summer Regional Convention.
We have so many choices every day in our jobs and personal lives. It’s refreshing to see the whole year ahead at once and
another year behind so we can take stock. I have a favorite time

Bregman suggests we be strategic and pick five areas in our lives to focus
on for one year. It is a manageable chunk of time to try to make progress.
For instance, if you pick three areas of growth in the category of Business
and two areas of growth in the category of Personal what would they be?

2015 is a year for your Dean to prioritize the planning and execution of the Southwest Regional Convention. Many others in our chapter
are doing the same and we hope you will join us when we call you for
volunteer opportunities. I can easily find four other areas in my life that
need improvement. Can you? Celebrate first. Happy New Year! Then inspire and amaze yourself.
Best of luck in all your 2015 endeavors.

VOLUNTEER RECITALISTS NEEDED!
We need chapter members to volunteer for our February 2015
main chapter event:
BACH & HANDEL BIRTHDAY ORGAN RECITAL
Holy Family Catholic Church in west Fort Worth
Monday evening, February 23, 2015
AGO MISSION
STATEMENT
Organ is a 3-manual Frels tracker. (Pistons are very limited and
are controlled by switches on a se'erboard, so a chapter member
will be available to draw/retire stops as you play if you need registration changes as you proceed.)
The mission of the Ameri-
Dr. Robert August, our Subdean and Chair of the Program Commi'ee, will ʺorganʺ-ize a program that has a balance of Bach and
Handel compositions. Bach wrote more organ pieces for organ than
did Handel, so members who can do a
Handel organ concerto or parts of one,
are encouraged to volunteer.
The program will be designed
not to exceed one hour. Bach and Handel compositions wri5en strictly for organ are preferred, but transcriptions
from their arias and other works will be
considered. Volunteers should well
know their
music selections since practice time on the recital
instrument will be very limited, but
sufficient for determining registrations. After the volunteer list is compiled, the Program Commi'ee will design a program from the selections received, and you will be notified of the
pieces that were selected for the program. Volunteers with organ performance degrees and/or Guild certifications will be considered first.
can Guild of Organists is to
enrich lives through organ
and
choral
music.
To
achieve this, we:
Encourage excellence in the
performance of organ and
choral music;
Inspire, educate, and offer
cer#fica#on for organists
and choral conductors;
Provide networking, fellowship, and mutual support;
Nurture future genera#ons
of organists;
Promote the organ in its
historic and evolving roles;
and
Engage
wider
audiences
with organ and choral music.
The program will be a free public recital and members of Holy
Family will receive a special invitation.
If you would like to be considered for the program, please notify
Dr. August as soon as possible. Include the piece or pieces youʹd like
considered for the recital. Dr. August’s e-mail:

7 Myths of Hymn Playing
Vidas Pinkevicius, DMA
(Reprinted with permission of the author)
Have you ever been to a church service only to discover that you really can predict how the next
hymn will be played? What kind of texture, disposition of parts, registration, articulation, and even
the introductions? Perhaps you play this way yourself? This and other situations are myths that
donʹt have to be true. They only remove the joy of musical experiments and discoveries from the service playing which makes organist feel that he or she is a cog in a machine and not an artist. Here
they are:
1. Number of parts in hymn playing is four. No, you can choose any number of parts between 1
and 6.
2. Disposition of parts is SATB. No, any voice can be placed in any part, even the soprano.
3. The part in the pedal can only be the bass. No, treat your feet like an extra hand and play any
part you want. Even the soprano. Especially the soprano.
4. Rests between the phrases are only for breathing. No, you can add flourishes and runs of any
kind between the phrases (just like Bach when he returned from his study with Buxtehude).
5. Registration is principal chorus with mixtures. No, depending on the size of the congregation
and the meaning of the particular stanza of the hymn, you can choose a wide variety of combinations from flutes, principals, mutations, and reeds.
(connued on page 7)

7 Myths of Hymn Playing (connued from page 6)
6. Articulation is legato. For hymns created after 1800ʹs, yes, itʹs best to play legato but for earlier hymns
- use articulate legato touch (smooth, singing style - not too choppy, emphasize the meter - the alternation
of strong and weak beats).
7. Introduction for the hymn can only be the first or the last phrase of the hymn. No, you can create anything you want for an introduction, even a short 3 part fughe'a or the choral prelude (if the time allows).
Remember Bachʹs Orgelbuchlein?
Bonus Myth 1: You should always use classical tonal harmony in harmonizing hymns. No, on special
occasions, you can surprise your congregation by harmonizing a hymn in chords containing seconds,
fourths, fifths, tritones, and even modal harmony as well as jazz chords.
Bonus Myth 2: The style of hymn playing should always be chordal. No, you can make use of polyphony as well - make the parts more independent.
You donʹt have to believe these myths, if you want to make your hymn playing and church service playing in general much more creative, brave, and rewarding. Instead always ask yourself, ʺwhy am I doing this
or that, why am I playing this hymn this way?ʺ and try to challenge yourself with: ʺWhat if...?ʺ
Sure, not everyone in your congregation is going to like the change in your playing but you are not trying to please everyone. Itʹs not your job. Your job is to explore the boundaries, what works and what
doesnʹt. Your job is to be an agent of change.
Let the people take part in your explorations; communicate with them why are you doing this. Then
some of them will gratefully cheer you on and become true evangelists for your cause.
Donʹt be afraid to do something that ma'ers to you. They didnʹt like Bachʹs hymn playing in Arnstadt
after he came back from his study with Buxtehude after that Christmas of 1705 either...

AMERICAN GUILD OF ORGANISTS
AWARDED $20,000 GRANT FROM THE
NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS
NEA Funding Will Support Educational Programming in 2015 and New Music Commissioned for the
2016 AGO National Convention in Houston, Tex.
NEW YORK CITY — The American Guild of Organists (AGO) has been awarded a grant by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support educational programming in 2015 and new music
commissioned for the AGO National Convention in Houston, Tex., June 19–23, 2016. The $20,000
NEA “Art Works” grant will support Pipe Organ Encounters for youth and adults, performances and
workshops at all seven AGO Regional Conventions, the Guild’s professional certification program for
organists and choral conductors, and new music commissions. While the Guild has benefitted from
NEA support for the past five consecutive AGO National Conventions, the 2015 grant represents the
first support the Guild has received for its educational programs and regional conventions.
“This grant covers the full breadth of the AGO’s educational activities for current and prospective members as well as our programs of outreach to the public,” stated AGO Executive Director James
Thomashower. “The NEA’s funding sends an uplifting message to the entire organ community: our
instrument and its music are vitally important to the American people. The award validates the AGO’s
ongoing efforts to ensure that music for the organ is created by talented composers, performed by
skilled musicians, and appreciated by the widest audience possible. It is an honor for the Guild to be
recognized by the NEA, the most prestigious independent federal agency in the United States responsible for funding and promoting artistic excellence, creativity, and innovation.”
NEA Chairman Jane Chu added, “I am pleased to be able to share the news of our support
through Art Works including the award to the American Guild of Organists. The arts foster value, connection, creativity, and innovation for the American people. This grant demonstrates those attributes
and affirms that the arts are part of our everyday lives.”
Art Works grants support the creation of art, public engagement with art, lifelong learning in
the arts, and enhancement of the livability of communities through the arts. The NEA received 1,474
eligible applications under the Art Works category, requesting more than $75 million in funding. Of
those applications, 919 were recommended for grants for a total of $26.6 million. For a complete listing
of projects recommended for Art Works grant support, please visit the NEA website at Arts.gov. For
further information about the AGO’s educational programming, please visit the AGO website at

IS YOUR MEMBERSHIP RECORD CORRECT?
If your entry in our Chapter’s current Yearbook doesn’t contain the right e-mail address or telephone
number, your church job title and church is not shown, your degrees are not shown after your name, etc. –
that means your membership record is not up-to-date.
AS OF MARCH, 2014, MEMBERS ARE RESPONSIBLE TO KEEP THEIR MEMBERSHIP RECORD
UPDATED. Local chapters no longer maintain a membership database and use only the data you enter
in the national membership database.
You may review your membership record at any time by logging in to ONCARD system on the AGO
headquarters’ website to gain access to the national AGO membership database.
(If your membership includes the The American Organist magazine, and you move, update your postal address in the membership database, and the magazine editor will be automatically notified to change
your magazine’s delivery address.)
TO UPDATE YOUR RECORD, go to AGO HQ website (www.agohq.org) and on home page,
choose “membership” and then choose “membership/update.” That will get you to the ONCARD log-in
page. There are instructions for logging in. After you log-in, a menu will be displayed. Choose “update
personal information.” That will take you to your database record. There are three address sections in
your record: the first is for your residential address information and the second and third are for your music employer(s)’ organization name and address. ALSO, BE SURE TO ENTER YOUR JOB TITLE. THERE
IS A PLACE FOR THAT TO THE RIGHT OF THE EMPLOYER’S ORGANIZATION NAME. After making
your updates, scroll all the way to the end of the form and click on “post changes.” You may access your
record at any time to view it and/or make changes.
For those with no internet/e-mail service, to update your record, provide the information to Ed
Ackermann, Communications Chairman, Tel. 817-584-5591.
