The Membership and Programs Committee (MPC) continues to learn about the types of programs and projects our members enjoy.
In 2023, PGS presented Grainger's choral works, with two programs (an introduction, then a program on performance). The 2023–24 program year began with the Annual Member's Meeting on July 8 (Percy's 134th birthday!) by introducing a number of initiatives, including Grainger Reimagined, three virtual meetings. The first meeting of Grainger Reimagined was presented in October, and the series will be completed in May, 2024. What's next? Your ideas are welcome!
The MPC will also receive updates on several current membership projects: Dana Paul Perna’s oral histories of founding and longtime Percy Grainger Society members; and Jennifer Martin’s compilation of the location of Grainger documents throughout the world. We are exploring collaborations with other organizations.
The Percy Grainger Society will continue discussion, begun last meeting, of potential projects that explore Percy Grainger’s life, music, and connections to those who have significantly contributed to the advancement of Grainger's legacy.
Discussion on further projects might include:
Please register to join the discussion on Thursday April 4, 2024 at 4 pm Eastern Time via zoom. As always, the MPC Chair is happy to discuss any aspect of the Membership and Programs Committee before or after the meeting. Email Bill Garlette (firstname.lastname@example.org).
