Message from the Dean 

Welcome to the Redwood Empire Chapter of the
American Guild of Organists (AGO) in California!

Need an organist? Your local AGO chapter is the right resource for finding an organist, either substitute or permanent. Call or e-mail our Dean or Webmaster (below) and we will publicize your open position for an organist and provide your information to all of our members. (Fees for organ playing service are negotiable with each organist.)

The Redwood Empire Chapter of the AGO invites organists, choral directors, music students, and organ enthusiasts who live or work north of the Golden Gate to join our chapter. The Redwood Empire Chapter includes the California counties of Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino and Lake. If you are already an AGO member, we invite you to dual membership.

Our chapter will sponsor and present periodic organ and choral recitals throughout the year. See the following entry below.
