Forward-looking or Forward-thinking in 2020?

Webster’s Dictionary defines Forward-Looking as “concerned with or planning for the future.” A forward-looking individual is someone who is particularly focused on the future and making plans for it–someone who looks ahead. Is there a better definition of musician than that?

The actual definition of musician, “one who is skilled in music,” leaves out so much of who and what we are! By necessity and practicality we are forward-looking individuals. We have to be focused on the future and making detailed plans for it. Most of us lack the qualities and skills of a Bach or Mozart and are unable to compose, perform, or teach without weeks, months, or sometimes even years of planning and preparation. That is who we are. This week, the first full week of the New Year, is littered with forward-looking meetings, encounters, emails, and practice.

As a teacher, the fall series of lessons culminating with a wonderful December recital by my students is over, and the forward-looking work of preparing schedules, and making lesson plans for the next six months of sharing the joy of music with my students is here.

As a performer, the successful presentation of our Bach and Sons, From Sea to Shining Sea, and Around the World in 80 Minutes organ and multiimedia events last fall are a wonderful memory, but now the Forward-Looking intensive practice and preparation for various concerts this spring demand my immediate attention.

As Musicians we have many detailed demands of planning and scheduling for the future. If we are successful we are doing our Forward-Looking well.

As a church musician, the wonder and glory of the Advent, Christmas and Epiphany celebrations are behind us, and the forward-looking work of preparing music for Ash Wednesday, Lent, Holy Week and Easter services has arrived.

From Sea to Shining Sea – organ and multimedia concert experience

From Sea to Shining Sea Organ and Multimedia Concert Experience

From Sea to Shining Sea is the the perilous story of the early expansion of the organ in the colonies into the US as told by an actual mayflower descendant. It is focused on unique American music and at the same time is more patriotic in nature. It has content unique to our concert, since it comes from concert organist Dr. Jordan’s thesis research. Excellent multimedia concert.
