AMERICAN GUILD OF ORGANISTS

MILWAUKEE CHAPTER



  

WELCOME

The American Guild of Organists - Milwaukee Chapter was chartered on May 5, 1919, to serve and support the professional activities of organists and church musicians in the Milwaukee area. Persons who participate in our chapter are organists, choir directors, organ builders, technicians, clergy, students, and those who appreciate organ and sacred music. The Chapter is open to those of all levels of playing proficiency.  Members especially appreciate the participation of those who simply listen and support organ and choral concerts.

Our Next Event


The American Guild of Organists is thrilled to announce the first online OrganFest, which will take place July 20-24. Each evening’s broadcast will premiere a new work which had been commissioned for the 2020 National Convention in Atlanta, accompanied by interviews with the composers. 

Featured performers will be Jens Korndörfer, Amanda Mole, Alan Morrison, Thomas Ospital, and Catherine Rodland. Additional recorded performances by recent international organ competition winners will be presented, and short presentations will share exciting news and updates from the AGO. 

The daily YouTube premiere (8pm Eastern) and accompanying Festival website will be available at no charge.  

OrganFest 2020 promises to be an exciting way to showcase our beloved instrument and the great work of the AGO. Please share this information widely with your music-loving friends. 

While we are saddened by the cancellation of many musical events this spring and summer, including our National Convention in Atlanta, we look forward to celebrating the future of organ music together online next month.

Kansas State University-Manhattan Chapter of the American Guild of Organists

to sponsor a POE June 22-27


This coming summer, the Kansas State University-Manhattan Chapter of the American Guild of Organists will be sponsoring its second POE (Pipe Organ Encounter), an outreach program for teenagers sponsored by the American Guild of Organists. Our chapter's POE will be held on the campus of Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. 

Participants will receive instruction from dedicated faculty members Elisa Bickers, Lynne Davis, Jacob Hofeling, David Pickering, Ann Marie Rigler, and Hentus van Rooyen. Participants will broaden their knowledge through masterclasses, performances, and other activities. In addition, participants will interact with their peers who share a love of the organ. 

I invite you to go to www.ksupoe.weebly.com to learn more about what participants will experience over the course of their time at the POE. Please fee free to view and distribute our brochure to those who might be interested.

Participants between the ages of 13 and 18 are eligible to apply. Previous organ study is not required, although minimal piano proficiency at the early intermediate level is desired.

Scholarship Assistance is available through the American Guild of Organists (ago.org/poe-scholarships); the application deadline is April 15, 2020. Scholarship decisions will be made by May 1, 2020. In addition, students may also contact AGO chapters or religious institutions if financial assistance is needed.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have!

Most sincerely,

David Pickering
