You don’t have to be an active organist or choirmaster to join the Guild. In fact, you don’t have to be a professional church musician at all. Membership in the Guild is open to all, and the only real requirement is an interest in the organ and/or sacred choral music. To become a member of the Colorado Springs Chapter, contact any Chapter officer. See below for contact information.
