Playing in Church
This is one of my fond memories. I'm playing the organ at St. Philip's Episcopal Church. I played for the summer while they were searching for a new organist. Mom came out and brought her oboe. During communion, Bill Roberts went to the keyboard and Mom and Bill both improvised together on a hymn. They had both never tried something like that before but it worked. I remember Mom was excited about that. It was nice to have her play. When I was still home after college we used to play through music together once in a while. We never really played together in public except for church stuff.
