Fifth Annual Young Artist Recital
Amanda Mole, organist

Saturday, November 4


T2015/2016 Executive Boardhe Binghamton Chapter was founded in 1929 and supports the goals of its parent organization, the American Guild of Organists. Our chapter hosted the Regional Convention in 2001 and has participated in such outreach events as the 2008 Organ Spectacular. This past year saw our first sponsorship of a Pedals, Pipes and Pizza event, designed to introduce young piano students to the organ. Our chapter has been represented at every recent Regional and National convention. Our small but active group of approximately 55 members plans a variety of events to serve a diversity of needs. On many occasions, we invite members of neighboring chapters to participate in our events adding to the enjoyment of each occasion. Some of us are organists, some of us build organs, and others are simply happy listeners.  Most importantly, we enjoy getting together to share our mutual love of organs and organ music.

We welcome visitors to any of our events, and encourage anyone who appreciates the organ, its repertoire and choral music to attend.  Better yet, consider becoming a member of the AGO.  If you are interested in joining our chapter, you may download a membership form or contact our dean or registrar for further information.
