    Members of the Central Iowa Chapter gathered

    on February 20 at Old Maines Brewing Compa-

    ny for a chapter-sponsored dinner. After dining

    and socializing, members moved to the First

    United Methodist Church to hear David Cher-

    wien and the National Lutheran Choir

    amaze listeners with whimsical organ improvisa-

    tion, impeccable blend, and powerful diction. A

    $500 donation from the chapter helped to bring

    the choir to Iowa for the concert. It centered on

    the liturgical texts of the Psalms and the im-

    portance of spirituals with poetic reflection and

    congregational singing throughout.

    Organist Ahreum Han Congdons performances have thrilled audiences throughout the United States, Asia, and

    Europe. She has been a featured soloist at many conventions and festivals, including the 2012 National

    Convention of the American Guild of Organists, the 2010 AGO Winter Conclave, the Young Virtuosi Festival,

    and the White Mountain Musical Arts Bach Festival. Ahreum has performed at some extraordinary venues,

    including Trinity Church at Wall Street, the Princeton University Chapel, the Memorial Chapel at Harvard

    University, Jack Singer Hall in Calgary, Michealskirche in Leipzig, Germany, Oxford Town Hall (UK), Nottingham

    Albert Concert Hall (UK), and Esplanade Hall in Singapore. Her performances have been featured on the radio

    show PIPEDREAMS. Ahreum is presently the Principal Organist, Assistant Director of Music, and Artist-in-

    Residence at First Presbyterian Church in Davenport, Iowa.

    The Central Iowa Chapter recently made a financial contribution to Iowa Public Radio in support of

    their reinstatement of Pipedreams. Chapter Dean, Michael Stefanek, sent the gift along with a letter. He

    emphasized the appreciation and importance of the radio show writing: On behalf of the Central Iowa

    Chapter of the American Guild of Organists I want to express our extreme gratitude to you and the

    management for the return of the program, Pipedreams, on Iowa Public Radio...This program is a great

    blessing to have for organists, organ enthusiasts, and choral music enthusiasts. We strongly encourage

    the continuance of this unique program for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy.
