A pre-convention “appetizer” was served on Saturday, 3 July, from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m., when Samuel Soria, Cathedral Organist, Lynn Dobson and John Panning provided a sonic tour of the organ.
On Monday, 5 July, an 8:00 p.m. choral program under the direction of Paul Salamunovich with William Beck at the organ featured works by Morten Lauridsen and C.H.H. Parry, and the premiere of a commissioned work by Byron Adams. A recital by Martin Jean of Yale University, performing Tournemire’s Improvisation sur le Te Deum and Dupré’s Symphonie-Passion, Op. 23, immediately followed. To celebrate Martin’s program and the organ, and to observe the shop’s 30th anniversary, a reception was held at the Cathedral conference center.
The Cathedral was the setting for the closing events of the Convention on Friday, 9 July. Sal Soria presented works by Wyton, Howells and Sowerby. The Annual Meeting immediately followed; it included an improvisation by Peter Krasinski, winner of the 2002 National Competition in Organ Improvisation. The final convention event was a concert by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, Grant Gershon, Conductor and William Beck, Organist, performing works by Byrd, Billings, Bedford, Fauré, Duruflé, Pärt, Thompson, Wagner and Finzi.
Kudos to the Los Angeles Committee for hosting a remarkable convention!

Two events took place this weekend to celebrate our 30th year of business. On Saturday 27 March, we hosted a festive dinner for our present and former employees. On Sunday 28 March, we held an open house featuring our new organs for Washington, D.C. and Ellison Bay, Wis. We were honored to have as guests some members of the Ellison Bay organ committee, many clients from previous projects, and other visitors from as far away as Maryland and Delaware. In all, more than 600 friends of the company enjoyed the day.
