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.

December Dean's Message

Holiday greetings to all from your Dean:
Your AGO board met right before Thanksgiving and received news, mostly good! Our application to host the 2022 National AGO Convention was accepted by the Convention Committee and will be forwarded to the national board for their decision. We will let you know when we hear from them, but at this point, we thank Wyatt Smith and Sam Libra, as well as board officers, for their work in assembling our application.

Reluctantly we received the news that Michelle Horsley, due to an upcoming move to the east coast, is resigning her member-at-large position on the Board. As directed by the board, her vacancy, through 2019, will be appointed and I'll announce that news in our next newsletter.

With enthusiasm we will be taking turns sharing holiday music at three malls the weekend of December 16-18. Thanks to all who have worked on this outreach endeavor, what fun we will have.

Rich blessings as you lead your various worshipping assemblies in singing the favorite carols of the season!

Musically yours,
Norma Aamodt-Nelson, dean
