As one of the largest AGO chapters in the country, we strive to be a useful resource in the fields of organ and choral music for our members. We provide quality educational and professional experiences, as well as opportunities to hear first-rate performances of musicians from the metro Detroit area and from across the country and beyond.
Membership information, as well as upcoming events and interesting information about our chapter, including its musicians and many historical instruments from the Detroit area, may be found on our website. You will also find useful placement information, as well as a list of organ teachers.
