Randall Atcheson Recital
o w a s h o m e Organ, Piano Concert Set In Thomasville Church On Nov. 19 THOMASVILLE -- An organ and piano concert will be given at Memorial United Methodist Church on Nov. 19 by Randall Atcheson. The program will be given at 11 o'clock in the morning. Mr. Atcheson was only 9- years-old when he got bored with being a prodigy merely on the piano. He began pounding the floor with his feet as if he were playing the organ during his preacher father's Sunday services in Clanton, Ala. His family found a small organ on which he could learn at home. Three years later he was enrolled in Birmingham's Samford University on an organ and piano scholarship. Transferring to New York's Juilliard School in 1971, Atcheson has pursued a dual musical course. He is the only student allowed to pursue pursue a double major in these instruments, studying with famed teachers Sascha Gorodnitzki and Anthony Newman. Last month Atcheson, 23, won f i r s t place in the school's organ competition and a c o v e t e d appearance with the Juilliard Orchestra at Lincoln Center. L a t e r t h i s Atcheson will tour five in a program sponsored by Great Northern Nekoosa Corp. designed to give artists the widest possible national exposure. Atcheson calls his talent "a gift God--and I owe Him the I can make it." The musician will play music from Bach, Debussy, Scriabin, Wider and Liszt the concert in Thomasville on Wednesday. Group To Meet At Moose Home Women, of the Moose will have a business meeting Monday evening at the Moose Home on North Street. The business session is planned for 8 o'clock.
