Welcome to the web site of the District of Columbia Chapter of the American Guild of Organists!
The United States of America's capital city and its surrounding areas, has enjoyed a rich and diverse cultural history since its founding in the late 1700's. Along with the stately monuments, captivating museums and art galleries, a richly varied theater life, and an enviable array of top-flight choral ensembles, Washington D.C. also boasts a lively pipe organ culture, to which our Chapter members and our many churches and cathedrals contribute significantly.
We cordially invite all people who love the pipe organ and its music to explore this website for the many opportunities to attend the many AGO-sponsored events as well as the hundreds of concerts held in our churches and concert halls. All are welcome, no matter if you're an official AGO member or not. Our mission is to share the glories of the "King of Instruments" with all who visit this great city!
Perhaps you found this site because you are interested in becoming a member of the Chapter. We would be delighted if you would join our ranks. The Membership Form link offers a simple way to proceed. We also welcome you to become a dual member with us and your home chapter.
Thank you for visiting us. We hope that you will join us for one or more of our seasonal events.
