Message from the Dean
Welcome to the Lynchburg Chapter of the American Guild of Organists! We are a small but dedicated chapter of members who are interested in the organ, choirs, and church music. Our group includes full-time career church musicians, part-time church musicians, retired musicians, new church musicians, and retired musicians.
