Mid-Shore Maryland

Message from the Dean

Welcome to the Mid-Shore Maryland AGO website!  We are delighted you have taken the time to visit our site and to see what is happening in and around our region with regard to the King of Instruments.  As Maryland’s newest AGO chapter, we have an energetic and growing membership that is eager to meet you!  While we all share a common love for the organ and its music, we are also here for choral musicians, handbell musicians, teachers and students of music, and folks who are simply identified as enthusiasts.  As you will see, our chapter has an exciting year planned, and we invite you to attend all of our  events.  Wishing to be a vibrant resource in our region, we hope you will consider becoming a member of the Mid-Shore Maryland AGO and be sure to let us know what types of programs would be of benefit to you and many of your colleagues.

Again, thanks for stopping by and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Placement

All Faith Episcopal Chapel, Tunis Mills, about 7 miles from downtown Easton, is looking for a Sunday organist.  This small and loving congregation worships about 20-25 people on a Sunday, with many members of the congregation being seasonally present during different times of the year.  We are looking for someone who can help us explore our hymnal and our rich musical traditions, while at the same time acknowledging that we are a small and aging congregation with our favorite hymns that we love to sing.  Our church is open to working with organ students and with retired organists.  If our congregation interests you, please contact the Rev. Canon Patrick A. Collins at patrick@dioceseofeaston.org.
