Summer has arrived

Our daisies fill our front yard with perfect white blooms, my favorite Kansas sunflowers fill a vase in our living room, and our glorious petunias welcome students and friends to our front door.  The ocean is a gorgeous blue this time of year reflecting an equally blue sky.  Summer at the Oregon beach has arrived and all I can say is, “WOW!”

As we enjoy those “WOWs” of summer in Oregon, the summer is also a time to create or re-live some “WOW” moments in our music-making:

  • David and I had the thrill of performing our Bach and Sons show at the Regional American Guild of Organists convention in late June.
  • Last week I received from Adrienne Tindall of Darcey Press several volumes of new organ music and another composer sent an organ suite to me to preview.  Another summer “WOW” for me as I began playing through some interesting and creative new music.
  • David and I will share some reflections of past “WOW!” music-making moments in our July/August Pro-Motion Music newsletter.

So what will be your musical “WOW!” moments this summer?  Will you…

  • discover a new piece to learn?
  • perform a favorite piece at worship or for friends in your home?
  • complete a goal?
  • plan your fall recital music?
  • listen to recordings of your past performances on the student web page?
  • attend a concert or workshop?
  • play a fabulous organ?

Happy practicing and happy music-making and music-sharing as you create your “WOWs!” this summer.

Dr. Jeannine Jordan, concert organist
