The St. Louis Chapter of the American Guild of Organists

All individuals interested in the organ and choral music fields are invited to join the American Guild of Organists. Membership is open to everyone, regardless of denominational affiliation or musical ability.

Members of the guild enjoy many benefits, not least of which is access to communication with colleagues on local and national levels, networking with organists, choral directors, builders, technicians, and organ enthusiasts in the area. Members receive weekly email updates about area events, The Opus, our monthly newsletter, a subscription to The American Organist, Educational chapter programs, national and regional conventions, and professional development services among many others.

Members and non-members are welcome at any of our chapter events. Our upcoming events are listed here:
