The Diapason July 2015 Newsletter

July 23, 2015


We report the happy news of competition results, for the 2015 Lynnwood Farnam Competition (Canada’s oldest organ competition), and the Taylor Organ Competition in Atlanta.

It’s the time of year when many new appointments are announced. We note the appointments of Jonathan Dimmock, Scott Lamlein, G. Phillip Shoultz III, and Russell Stinson. Our “In the wind . . .” columnist, John Bishop, has announced a new company, John Bishop Organ Consultation.

New recordings are available, by Jan Kraybill, and Nigel Potts with Sarah Rose Taylor.

Recent activities include a program given by David Hurd, and a celebration concert at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lynnwood, Washington. In organbuilding news, the Bedient Pipe Organ Company of Roca, Nebraska, has relocated the firm’s Opus 8.

Our newsletter sponsor is the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.
