Family pride

I'm proud of my kids.

I don't have children. I have students. And sometimes it is appropriate to call them kids. Not because they're childish, but because they accomplish things that 'students' don't usually accomplish at that age. Sometimes the most endearing title I can come up with is Kids.

My kids have now been invited to play two recitals on the road as a studio. To my knowledge, this is a first at our university. They will be playing at the First Presbyterian Church of Bristol, Tenn., on Sunday, February 9. Then they have an unconfirmed date to play in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

They're also headed back to Kilgore, Tex., in a couple weeks for the third annual East Texas Pipe Organ Festival.

And I'm receiving email after email from people who have delighted in our recent vintage photos in The American Organist magazine. One caption was, "All dressed up -- and going places."

It all makes a father proud.
