News and Needs...
I am always happy about the Concordias and their programs of church music. SAD to admit that Concordia Bronxville no longer has a church music program. SAD to find out that Seward (known for the likes of Charlie Ore and Dave Held and now Joe Herl among others) may soon be without a major pipe organ. The chapel organ is in disrepair and their is not much interest on campus in either fixing it or replacing it with a pipe instrument. So if you know of someone who is in favor of the liturgy and good church music (and has a few bucks) pass that name on to Joe Herl or do some PR work yourself. Can you imagine a school of Synod teaching parish musicians and yet without a decent pipe organ in their chapel????? Come on... people... lets see what we can do!
We need to do everything we can to keep church music a priority in our Synodical colleges...

You do realize that Seward DOES offer courses leading to a "certificate" in contemporary church music? It's not my alma mater any longer...

Like electing a banjo player to be synodical president.
Oh, for crying out loud! Pr Harrison's banjo playing is a *hobby* ;ust because he loves bluegrass music doesn't mean he's going to advocate for bluegrass mass.
