We are a group of organists, choir directors and other organ fans in the Grand Strand area of South Carolina.
The American Guild of Organ (AGO) is a national organization which promotes the organ in its historic and evolving roles, encourages excellence in the performance of organ and choral music, and provides a forum for mutual support, inspiration, education, and certification of Guild members.
Our chapter was formed in 2010 and welcomes new members. We have a lively program of activities, including 'organ crawls', regular meetings (with food!), music try outs, and workshops: and everyone appreciates the fellowship of our meetings. Why not join us?

Welcome to the website of the Grand Strand Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Our chapter brings together clergy, organists, and lovers of organ music in the Grand Strand Region of South Carolina to provide programs, instruction, and concerts. Recent programs included a Pedals Pipes and Pizza Event for piano students, a Choral Festival and Evensong with Dr. Matthew Hoch, an Organ Crawl in Georgetown, an organ concert by Rodney Ward of Appalachian State University, and an Opening Convocation with District Convener, Tony Roof.
The fine arts are alive and well in this region with many talented professional and amateur organists. Our chapter is committed to broadening the scope of support for the arts as well as organists in this area. I encourage you to browse our website for information about our chapter and contact us if we can be of assistance.
