WELCOME!

We would like to welcome you to membership in the Cape Cod and the Islands Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Consisting of 60-plus musicians throughout the region, the Chapter’s annual activities often include a Celebrity Performance by an outstanding organist, a Members Recital, a musically-based Convocation Service, an Annual Meeting devoted to social fellowship, and several other events designed to be of interest and benefit to church musicians.

The chapter follows the procedures of the national American Guild of Organists and maintains contact with other chapters. A Board of Directors meets monthly to plan and organize the work of the chapter, and if you have an interest in becoming an officer or board member, please let us know and we can be in touch. Names of current officers and board members are found elsewhere on this website. As always, we welcome your ideas and comments as we strive to be an organization which meets the needs of organists and choirmasters in our area; please let us know your ideas at davidchina_2000@yahoo.com.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.
