Please join us for our first meeting of the season on Monday, 23 September 2019 at 6pm at Kalamazoo’s First Baptist Church. We will begin with a potluck meal followed by a report by Stephen White about his recent choir excursion to England. We will next hear about the recent restoration work done to the First Baptist Letourneau organ and have some open console time. Please bring a piece or two to play! 

We remain excited about the future of the SW Michigan Chapter and the work we do throughout the area we serve. The executive board remains committed to providing a range of chapter programs that will engage members of all backgrounds, as well as the community. We hope that you will support us through the sharing of ideas and active participation in chapter events.
