Tempe, Arizona: Lindsay turned 100 this past October, with a celebration appropriate
to the occasion. A party/recital attended by some 75 guests was followed by a dinner with extended family.
Some of those making the cross-country trip to Arizona included former students (1961 era) from
Hobart & William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY
(where he served as professor of music, choirmaster and chapel organist from 1948 through 1979).
Cards and gifts included a signed greeting from Queen Elizabeth II. (Britannia rules!)
Lindsay was both vigorous and voluble and he accompanied on piano part of the musical performance
of his works featured at the party. The organ pieces required substitute performers since his leg was not yet up to the musical footwork required.
(Though recovering from a broken pelvis suffered a year ago, he is making great progress.)
All in all, it was a wonderful event and a tribute to Lindsay's spirit, optimism,
and how embracing music makes your life not only better but longer.
