The AGO is a national professional association of over 21,000 members throughout the United States and abroad. Chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York in 1896, the Guild’s mission is to enrich lives by encouraging excellence in the performance of organ and choral music. Membership is open to everyone, including organists, choir directors, music teachers, working professionals, students, clergy and dedicated supporters. The Chattanooga Chapter spans the area from Sewanee to Athens, TN to Dalton, GA. Area concerts, recitals, and musical programs are sponsored by the chapter throughout the year and are open to the public.


Welcome to the 2013-14 year of the Chattanooga Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. We are looking forward to an exciting year of concerts, programs and other opportunities to be together as musicians in the area. This program year marks the 100th anniversary of the AGO in Tennessee.
