Narrative story is the fundamental instrument of thought

We take enough pictures and selfies to where it takes the energy of 12 nuclear power plants just to supply the energy used everyday just to upload our phone/camera pictures. Do you think we want to tell our stories..?

Stories let us carve our initials in the wet cement of the moment

We’re all constantly exchanging our own narratives. We do it all the time. We do it on the phone, we do it online, we do it in coffee shops, we do with people we love, we do with people we just met for the first time. This is not new. For thousands of years almost every human culture has been telling stories. Telling stories helps make sense of what it is to be human. Stories let us carve our initials into the wet cement of the moment.

Jeannine and her organ students

Picture 16 squares in a multi-colored quilt. A quilt in which each square tells a different and unique story with a history that is like no one else’s. That quilt is Jeannine’s organ studio and the squares (sorry just turned out that way) in the quilt are her organ students. They are part of a small affirming community that uniquely encourages and supports each other. Granted I like to see how they are making progress, but what I am really engrossed with is how they are so very supportive of each other. It’s amazing. Having gotten two degrees in music, I’m not used to musicians being very nice to each other. Huh.

Those students range in ages from 8 to infinity and enjoy playing and listening to each other. Most of the time the students hit home runs. Sometimes they don’t. But if they don’t there’s no fear that someone is going to “shake their heads” (Psalm 109:25) It’s a community of which more people should be a part. It’s a great way to build up your courage, experience, and oh yes, your organ skills.

Why do we want to share an organ and multimedia concert with your audience?

Author:  David Jordan, media artist of Pro-Motion Music — creators and presenters of dramatic organ and multi-media concert experiences.  Excerpted from the November 2018 Pro-Motion Music e-newsletter.

Okay, sounds reasonable. Why would we want to share one of our organ and multimedia concerts with your audience?

  • Our concerts appeal to your complete audience with “Stories to Move you – Music to Thrill you – Visuals to Captivate you”
  • The music and narration provide the story; the visuals are the path on which the story travels.
  • We speak to the auditory person with some of the most stunning music written for the organ and captivating stories
  • We allow the visually oriented person see the background images that help create the story and also see the work the organist does
  • We engage the kinesthetic participant with the rhythm of the music, the pulse and emotion of the story, and the moving animations
  • It is an enriching experience to attend one of our concerts – Bach and SonsFrom Sea to Shining Sea or Around the World in 80 Minutes___________________________________________________________________________
