Message from the Dean
Welcome to our webpage! Our community (Eureka, Arcata, McKinleyville, Fortuna, Trinidad, and surrounding area) is on the beautiful North Coast of California, surrounded by redwood forest. Pipe organs in the area range from a one-manual Bosch tracker at Humboldt State University (Arcata) to a new Charles Kegg III/30 at Christ Episcopal Church (Eureka).
Our small chapter offers organ scholarships which pay for one half of the cost of 12 private lessons. Contact the Dean of the Chapter for application forms. Lessons are available for beginners to advanced levels, and some piano experience is preferred.
We welcome all communication from other organists, choir directors, and other musicians and always welcome new members. You may join the Chapter at either the national level or as a Chapter Friend. Contact our Secretary/Treasurer for membership information.
Concerts Series at Christ Episcopal Church (15th and H Streets), Eureka, CA. Suggested donation: $15 individual/$25 family. A ‘Meet the Artist’ reception follows each performance. For more information, call: 707-442-1797
AGO-Sequoia Chapter activities coming up in early 2020: The Sequoia Chapter will present an AGO Sequoia chapter member Play-In at the LDS Church Stake Center in Mckinleyville, CA. Date to be announced soon.
