AGO Welcome

Our next meeting is the Pedals, Pipes and Pizza held at South Park United Methodist Church, Dayton  

AGO PPP Organ Time

Jim Owen will host us at Zion as we sing and peruse at the 2015 Music Sale!     Bring your favorite chorale selections for us to sing as you accompany us on either Zion’s  fine small Casavant organ, electronic keyboard or piano. 
We have plenty of music for sale including our usual library plus new contributions from several members. The music sale is a wonderful place to pick up a wide range of music. Last year I picked several gems at the sale including “Organ Improvisations” by Gerre Hancock, a set of 3 books of preludes and postludes based on hymn tunes, a “Last Stanza Extravaganza”, some Bach and Handel, and my personal favorite, “Grand Choeur” by R.G.Halling, from a 1932 collection of postludes from the St. Cecilia Series.     
There will be an even bigger selection this year so make your list or just browse the night away.  You won’t find a better deal anywhere!  Light refreshments follow.
Priscilla Acuff and Southpark UMC will host the 2015 Pedals, Pipes and Pizza Event on February 7th.  This event is designed to foster interest in the organ in young students.  During the PPP, kids will have a class on the organ, will tour inside the pipe chambers and will each have the opportunity to play the South Park organ. 

The remainder of the 2014-2015 program has something for everyone including an electronic organ demo/test drive, Pedals Pipes and Pizza, a small choir workshop with Basil Fett, Academy student recitals and finally a carillon recital and tour joint with the Cincinnati chapter. Plan to make as many as you can.  

This year and last, we have shared an event with the Cincinnati AGO Chapter. We have been encouraging members from both chapters to attend each other programs, so you can download the Cincinnati AGO Program here or find it in the August Trumpetings.

Find and Organist Job



We are not a stuffy group of high-brow organists, who all have organ performance degrees. No, no, far from it. We are teachers, students, part-time composers and arrangers, office workers, singers, music directors and pastors, professors, engineers, full-time and part-time organists, keyboard and electronic organ aficionados who enjoy supporting one another (and even borrowing from one another) as we play excellent church music that makes a joyful noise to the Lord! (And we eat together from time to time.) Come and join us this coming year.

The Mission of the AGO is:

To advance the cause of organ and choral music, to increase organ and choral music contributions to aesthetic and religious experiences, and to promote the understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of organ and choral music.

To improve the proficiency of organist and choral conductors. To evaluate, by examination, attainments in organ playing, choral techniques, conducting, and the theory and general knowledge of music, and to grant certificates to those who pass such examinations at specified levels of attainment.

To provide members with opportunities to meet for discussion of professional topics, and to pursue such other activities that contribute to the fulfillment of the purposes of the guild.
