On Wednesday @laputis and I went to our first Unda Maris organ studio rehearsal this year. I was surprised to find 15 people on the organ balcony. Half of them were new. It will be a very difficult year if they all continue to attend because there were a few who might come only next week. I have a hope that only the most motivated will stay.
After I asked them to introduce themselves, I played for them a short introduction to the organ:
Then some of them played on the organ too. A few people knew some music while some tried to play some chords or improvise. A couple of old members played as well. There was a couple of exchange students from China and Germany as well.
Next week I asked all of them to bring their favorite music. Some might work on the organ too.
