Welcome to Secrets of Organ Playing Podcast #97!
Today's guest is Gena Bedrosian who is a a lifelong musician and also a retired emergency physician and legal consultant. Sacred music speaks most closely to her. She sees music as worship to
the glory of God, not just performance. In retirement she performs in three choirs, on piano and pipe organ.
She reached out to me because she has a number of piano recitals coming up and one big organ recital planned for the next year.
Gena faces a challenge in communicating with one particular church because they won't let her to advertise this recital using church's internal marketing tools: email newsletter, website promotion etc.
It's a strange situation because it seems as though Gena has been scheduled to perform there, the church doesn't want people to come to her recital.
So if you are facing similar challenges, I hope this conversation will be helpful to you because together we will find a solution how Gena could go about in solving this problem in a diplomatic way.
Enjoy and share your comments below.
And don't forget to help spread the word about the SOP Podcast by sharing it with your organist friends.
Thanks for caring.
