Congratulations to one of our great organists!
Michael Jon Bennett has been accepted as a student for the 2012 Pipe Organ Encounter Advanced at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington in July of this year.
Michael has been selected to study privately with Dr. Marilyn Keiser, Chancellor’s Professor Emeritus of Music, Indiana University, and with Dr. David Schrader professor at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University in Chicago with whom Michael will study both organ and harpsichord.
Michael has received scholarships from the AGO-Durham-Chapel Hill Chapter, The Chapel of the Cross Church Episcopal Parish in Chapel Hill, and Christ United Methodist Church Chapel Hill to defray tuition expenses.
Congratulations to Michael, and thanks to all the people and organizations that are helping to make this wonderful experience possible!
