Partway through the recital, a fire alarm rang and we all traipsed out while firemen from 3 trucks and 2 cars checked out the church. When we were finally let back in - even though they were having difficulty turning off the alarm, we decided to have part one of the reception. When the alarm was turned off, we went back to the sanctuary for the last two recitalists, and then back to finish the reception.

Westchester County, NY, Westchester AGO Member' Recital, November 11, 2018: The recital was held at St. James the Less Epicsopal Church, Scarsdale, on their new Klais Orgelbau organ. Matthew Lewis hosted the event and various members brought goodies for the reception afterwards. The recitalists were Tamara Cashour, Edwin Wallace, Terence J. Flanagan, Jonathan Riss and Chris Yuejian Chen. They played selections by Joe Utterback, Edwin Wallace, Pierre Cochereau, Josef Gabriel Rheinberger, and Felix Mendelssohn. The excitement of the evening happened during Jonathan Riss's selection when the fire alarm sounded. After the fire fighters checked the church and allowed us back in while they tried to turn off the alarm, we had part of our reception. Terry Flanagan was presented the past dean pin from the current dean, Craig Degener. Then, we went back to the sanctuary to hear Jonathan's piece and the last recitalist's piece. After that, we returned to the Parlor for more food. -- Virginia Bender
