Message from the Dean
Welcome to the website of the Central Coast Chapter of the American Guild of Organists! We are pleased to have you with us, and hope that our website will help you learn more about us and our activities.
The American Guild of Organists is an organization that serves anyone interested in the organ and choral music fields. Founded as both an educational and service organization, the Guild seeks to set and maintain high musical standards and to promote understanding and appreciation of all aspects of organ and choral music.
Since October 1989 our chapter has been serving organists, choral directors and organ enthusiasts in the Central Coast communities from Lompoc to Paso Robles, California.
Please join us at our local events found on our calendar. And if you have the same love for organs as we do, why not become a member?
