National Conventions

The National Convention of the American Guild of Organists is held biennially in even-numbered years and reflects the diverse aspects of the Guild and its official work across the country. Held as a function of the national organization in partnership with a selected chapter, it represents a coalition between the national leadership and the host chapter’s leadership. This joint venture combines the talents and creative strengths of each, and represents the larger vision of the whole membership and its needs.

This episode of Pipedreams features music performed on some of the most important organs in and around Kansas City, Missouri. Whet your appetite by listening to the great performances on Pipedreams, then register for the convention if you have not done so already and enjoy hearing the same instruments in the rooms for which they were built.

Listen now.

Here is a great article from The Independent, Kansas City’s Journal of Society: Pipes All Around: International Musicians to Descend on KC

A Creative Partnership: Guidelines for National Conventions

These Guidelines are under revision. The copies available at left in PDF and Word formats were approved in 2010 with occasional updates to selected sections through 2014.  The newly revised 2018 Guidelines, which are still under development, will be available here on this website once revisions are completed.
