Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Dual Regional Convention
July 3-6, 2023
We invite you to the not-to-be-missed 2023 Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Dual Regional Convention, held this July 3-6. The headlining opening recital will be played by Peter Richard Conte on the just-completed IV/90 American Romantic organ by Austin. Opening worship features the New Choral Society under the baton of John T. King, organists Dina Foster-Osbourne and Janet Yieh, and a commission by Daniel Ficarri. We will close out this convention with the 47-piece Modus Operandi Orchestra under the baton of Justin Bischof and organ soloist David Enlow, followed by a gala reception.
July 4 worship will feature organists Terence J. Flanagan and David Hurd. Solo artists Amanda Mole, Caroline Robinson, Anne Laver, and Janet Yieh will present outstanding programs on four world-class tracker organs by J.W. Walker, Klais, Martin Pasi, and von Beckerath. Jennifer Pascual and Renée Anne Louprette will play historic organs built in 1906 by Odell and 1898 by Jardine (restored by Andover in 2001). Nathan Avakian will offer a theatre organ program on the New York Theatre Organ Society Allen Touring Organ. Of course a trip to the Hudson Valley isn't complete without a visit to West Point, where Craig Williams will share a recital on the massive Cadet Chapel organ.
In between, see old friends, make new friends, go to picnics, attend workshops, and have dinner in a variety of great local restaurants all within walking distance of the Sonesta Downtown White Plains, our convention hotel and headquarters.
Early-bird registration is open through April 15, 2023. Please have your government-issued identification at the ready when registering in order to be pre-cleared for admission to West Point.
