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.
Employers and job seekers are invited to post and search listings of available positions on the Guild’s National Website.
