The AGO is a national professional association of over 17,000 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.
Thank you for an amazing 2014-15 year for the Chattanooga Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
Over the past two years, our membership has increased by 26%. Wilma Jensen’s recital in October 2014 and the Vienna Boys Choir concert in March 2015 provided us with a huge increase in funds for our chapter. Keep tuned in for updates on the new Investment Committee’s report on how the Chapter will be investing those funds for our future.
It has been a pleasure being your Dean for the past two years. We are now at a wonderful crossroads and I look forward to being a part of the future of this chapter.
Keep posted for the 2015-16 Monthly Programs listing. Thank you!
Sheryl Horton, Dean
