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!

Wes Lockfaw
