About The Event

   Our annual Bach-a-Thon will once again be broadcast online and will be a fundraiser for our chapter's Scholarship Fund. We've raised a good amount of money and 100% of the proceeds fund the lessons for local organ students. Consider making a generous donation, and also start planning for your performance submission.

SCHEDULE

  • Sunday, February 4: deadline to submit pieces and lists of performers
  • Sunday, March 3: deadline to receive recordings
  • Sunday, March 17 at 2 pm: PREMIERE!

STEP ONE: PROPOSING PIECES AND LISTS OF PERFORMERS (DO THIS NOW!)

  • Complete this short form to submit your choice of piece. DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 4.
  • Since  this is a virtual event, we welcome submissions from your organist  friends living beyond Portland. And we DEFINITELY welcome submissions  from any organ students you have – so please spread the word!
  • It  will be first come, first served for specific pieces. If someone has  already proposed the piece you want to play, I’ll contact you to  encourage you to choose a different piece – so there’s definitely a  benefit in getting in there early.
  • Also,  you are welcome to offer more than one piece, but be aware that we may  need to make cuts if necessary to keep the run time within three hours.
  • Selections DON’T have to be on the organ. Piano, instruments, vocal solos are all welcome.

STEP TWO: RECORDING YOUR SUBMISSION

  • If you need any help finding an instrument to use, or with recording equipment, contact Matt Smith, Subdean, at msmith215@gmail.com.
  • Record the video of your performance. Here are some tips on recording video.  Need assistance? Reach out!  We can help!
  • Record a brief intro  to your performance separately from the performance itself.  Tell us  who you are, where you currently play (if you do), something about the  instrument you are playing, and maybe a little about why you chose the  piece.
  • I  would also appreciate receiving brief information in writing about the  organ you play (where located, specs, what sample set you’re using if  digital), to include this in the broadcast.

STEP THREE: UPLOADING YOUR SUBMISSION
