The mission of the American Guild of Organists is to enrich lives through organ and choral music. To achieve this, we

  • encourage excellence in the performance of organ and choral music;
  • inspire, educate, and offer certification for organists and choral conductors;
  • provide networking, fellowship, and mutual support;
  • nurture future generations of organists;
  • promote the organ in its historic and evolving roles; and
  • engage wider audiences with organ and choral music.

May Dean's Message

If you are like me, the high holy days we have celebrated took their toll. Normally I might escape to the ocean to sit and stare at the waves for a day or two. This year, I am headed to a conference in Valparaiso, Indiana to seek inspiration, collegiality, and refreshment. Self-care is important, so I hope you have and are finding ways to re-group before the end of the program year.

I had a lovely note from Erin Scheessele about the next Orgelkids opportunity which I want to lift to the membership. We have the opportunity to take Orgelkids to Seattle's Mini Maker Faire at MoPOP, September 16-17. AGO volunteers would be needed to staff the exhibit. I'm putting this on my calendar, and if you are able to join us, please send me an email (nkaamodt@aol.com)

Musically yours,
Norma Aamodt-Nelson, Dean
