` The Memphis Chapter of the American Guild of Organists
From the Dean...

Welcome! Here you can explore the many activities occurring in the Memphis Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.

AGO cultivates awareness of the pipe organ and of the wealth of music played upon it. We seek to inspire and to challenge our members to continue to grow throughout their careers. We offer to the general public opportunities to come to love the “king of instruments” and its varied musical expressions.

The Memphis chapter of AGO has now completed its season of programs and gatherings. It has been a positive and rewarding year for me and I am grateful for the opportunity to have served as dean this year. Because our officers do such a great job things have moved along beautifully and my job has been a joy.

Please check with us later during the summer for news about the upcoming season which will begin on Monday, September 17 at St. George’s Episcopal Church, Germantown, with a masterclass led by the renowned organist, Wilma Jenson.
