January Jubilee

JanJubilee

January Jubilees exist to nurture the many part-time musicians working for religious institutions, and provide opportunities for them to be introduced to the AGO and its work and mission.  January Jubilees offer part-time musicians  the chance to meet and interact with peers who share an interest in the King of Instruments.  Scroll further down this page to learn about January Jubilee events throughout the USA where gifted local musicians, clergy and other presenters offer workshops on interesting and practical topics.

Generous support for the January Jubilee program has been provided by Forrest T. Jones & Company.

January Jubilees exist to nurture the many part-time musicians working for religious institutions, introducing these musicians to the AGO and its work and mission, and encouraging them to become members of the Guild. The Jubilee will offer a rewarding chance to reshape your AGO chapter into a more accessible and welcoming image, to fill the gap between the local chapter activities and conference level efforts, and to meet and interact with peers who share an interest in the King of Instruments.

Application deadline for Chapters interested in hosting 2018 January Jubilees is May 1, 2017. Please click here for the handbook for information and application.
