Message from the Dean

Welcome to the web page for the Northwest Arkansas Chapter of AGO. Our small but active chapter includes members mainly from Benton and Washington counties. We have many fine medium- and small-sized pipe organs, with the three largest being:

  • Rogers:  52-rank Temple at Central United Methodist Church (2007)
  • Fayetteville:  38-rank Temple at First United Presbyterian Church (1926, 1968, 2015)
  • Bella Vista:  30-rank Casavant/Temple at First United Methodist Church (1971, 2008)

In recent years we have enjoyed concerts presented by outstanding guest organists, including Mary Preston, Jan Kraybill, the Chenault Duo, John Obetz, Joel Martinson, Nathan Laube, Gail Archer, Faythe Freese, and Marilyn Keiser.

We are a congenial group, always ready to welcome newcomers.  When you are in our area, please contact us so we can get acquainted!

All the best,

Broc Hite, Dean
