Message from the Dean

Welcome to the web page for the Northwest Arkansas NWA Chapter of AGO. Our small but active chapter includes members mainly from Benton and Washington counties, with a diverse culture. We can boast of several fine pipe organs including two recent installations: a 52-rank Temple organ at Central United Methodist Church in Rogers (2007), and a 30-rank Casavant at First United Methodist Church in Bella Vista (1971, 2008).

In recent years we have enjoyed concerts presented by outstanding guest organists, including Mary Preston, Jan Kraybill, the Chenault Duo, John Obetz (performing for our Organ Spectacular Concert in Oct 2008), Joel Martinson, Nathan Laube, and Faythe Freese.

We are a congenial group, always ready to welcome newcomers.
When you are in our area, contact us so we can get acquainted, show you some lovely organs, entertain you a bit and become good friends.

All the best,

Ernest Whitmore, Dean
