Honoring 66 Years of Teaching

Welcome!

The Organ Department at the University of Michigan invites you to join us in celebrating the extraordinary sixty-six year teaching career of Dr. Marilyn Mason. We will honor her with alumni concerts and guest host, Dave Wagner; a tribute dinner at the Michigan League Ballroom; an AGO reception at the First United Methodist Church; a Grand Night for Singing featuring the organ; and a recital by Tom Trenney.

We also look forward to presenting the lecture, concert, and visual offerings of numerous scholars and musicians on this joyous occasion of the 53rd Conference on Organ Music!

Please join us and Marilyn, our soon-to-be Professor Emerita!
