A little over a year ago at my last in-person book signing during the Ohio Music Educators Conference, a retired band director told me that he had a new gig playing organ for a church choir. For whatever reason, I was totally charmed by that idea and decided that it would be a perfect fit for my retired band director Harry L. Dinkle. I’d need a church, of course, so I decided to use the one that I already had in Crankshaft, St. Spires. Now I already had some reference for St. Spires, but nothing dealing with the choir loft.
So I called and asked if I could come over and take some pix in and around the choir loft. They generously allowed me to do that, and I’ll show you the results of that in St. Spires part 2.
