Promoting Musicianship and A Lifetime of Learning for Organists

The American Guild of Organists (AGO) is a national professional association serving organ and choral fields. It provides educational, certification and professional assistance to its members, while promoting the use of the pipe organ in sacred and concert settings.

Founded in 1914, the Atlanta Chapter was the first AGO chapter in the state of Georgia and is one of the largest chapters in the USA. Our diverse membership includes organists, choral conductors, singers, music educators, organ builders, curators, clergy, and enthusiasts and supporters of the organ.
