2014 GCNA Congress, Denver

Postby TimSleep on Thu Jan 16, 2014 3:34 am

The congress will begin with early registration on Monday, June 16, 2014 at the University of Denver, Colorado and concluding around noon on Friday, June 20, 2014.

On Monday, you will have an opportunity for a master class with Carlo van Ulft or Jeff Davis. The host recital will feature new compositions for the occasion by John Knox and Peter Olejar, along with a special arrangement by Carlo van Ulft. The Welcome Reception will follow with open time on the tower for those wishing to play appropriate cocktail music.

Other features of the congress will include artist, exam, new music and class of 2013 recitals; Barnes Scholarship presentations; Ellen Dickenson Part II; and organ recital at Sr. John's Cathedral by a few of our own; the "Other Instrument Recital" and the debut of the GCNA singers. Of course the requisite pizza party, ice cream social and banquet will also take place.

The official congress hotel will be the Hilton Garden Inn DTC. The rooms are $124, plus tax, including breakfast. It is about 45 minutes away from the airport and just a few stops away from the University on the Light Rail. The least expensive way to get to the hotel is to book the Super Shuttle (supper shuttle.com). It should be around $25 per person, one way. There will be dorm rooms available as well as a list of other hotels in the area. Both the hotel and the Williams Tower are within a 10 minutes walk from the Light Rail.

We hope to also have followup master classes available with Carlo and Jeff on Friday afternoon. The Post-Congress trip will be a tour of the Air Force Academy Chapel and organ, lunch in Manitou Springs and a trip up Pike's Peak on the cog railroad
