ARTICLE: "Church Supervises Wiegand Memorial For Scholarships
The trustees of Independent Presbyterian Church have agreed to supervise a music memorial scholarship fund opened by the daughter and grandson of John Wiegand, the church's organist from 1902 until his retirement at 74 in 1915.
The first contribution to the fund was given by Professor Wiegand's only surviving child, Marie Cabaniss, and his grandson, Charles Weigand Cabaniss.
Donations will be tax deductible and will be made payable to the church for the Weigand Scholarship Fund. Once the fund reaches the necessary size, annual scholarship awards are to be made by a panel of judges.
The contestants will be presented in recitals, adding a dimension to the musical and cultural life of Savannah that the sponsors wish the fund to foster.
Before coming to Savannah from Augusta in 1898, this distinguished musician and composer served 30 years as organist and choirmaster at St. Paul's Episcopal Church there. He became organist-choirmaster at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on arrival in Savannah, a post he left to take the Presbyterian church position.
Professor Weigand, as he was called, was born in Homberg, Germany and moved to New York at 18, where he played violin in the orchestra that became the new York Symphony.
He composed more than 1,000 sacred and secular works, many of which were published and continue to be used today." --
