July 2017 TAO

The July 2017 TAO features two renovations at St. John’s Cathedral in Denver. The chancel is Colorado’s biggest pipe organ, the last large surviving Kimball, and a memorial to notable Denverites. But that is only part of the story. In the gallery an intriguing possibility emerged. [More]

Update on Dues Renewals

Renewal emails and letters with invoices are being sent. They are later than usual this year because of changes to the AGO dues structure and the settlement with the Federal Trade Commission. If your membership expires in July, 2017 you can renew now by logging in to ONCARD. Members with expiration dates after July 31 should wait for an email before renewing.

2017 Regional Conventions

The AGO will host seven regional conventions this summer. Host cities include Montreal, Richmond, Jacksonville, Youngstown, Iowa City, Dallas, and Salt Lake City. Each convention features its own unique mix of artists and musical experiences. Smaller and more intimate than the national convention, the regionals offer many learning experiences and are a great way to get to know other AGO members. Each regional has its own website and registration process. [More]

San Diego, Hartford, Winchester, VA, and Sioux Center, IA are hosting Pipe Organ Encounters in 2017. A POE Advanced will be held in Tuscaloosa. A POE Technical will be held near Atlanta. Each POE offers a unique opportunity for hands-on learning as well as the opportunity to study with other students of the pipe organ. Classes are limited in size and applicants are encouraged to submit an application soon to claim a spot in the POE of your choice. [More]
