Oct. 25, a members' recital was held at White Plains Presbyterian Church (host Jonathan Riss, minister of music). An exciting program featured music of Bach, Dubois, Messiaen, Miller, Rispo, Robinson, and Sowerby, Two members played their own compositions; one was a hymn-tune improvisation. The 3-manual, 48 rank Austin (1964) offered great color contrasts at the hands of Craig Degener, Terence Flanigan, Janet Jacobson, Tim Keenan-Devlin, Margaret Kim, Kyoko Meredith, Frank Miller, Anthony Rispo, Jonathan Riss, and Sandor Szabo. A reception prepared by the Millers followed the concert and topped off a lovely afternoon. – Joyce Gardner
