Welcome To Knox AGO
'Tis that time of year again…time to renew memberships for the 2013-2014 year of the American Guild of Organist. As you renew your membership for the coming year, OR if you are joining us as a new member, I would like to make everyone aware of some of the purposes of the American Guild of Organists:
- To advance the cause of organ and choral music, to increase their contributions to aesthetic and religious experiences, and to promote their understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment.
- To improve the proficiency of organists and choral conductors.
- To evaluate, by examination, attainments in organ playing, choral techniques, conducting, and the theory and general knowledge of music, and to grant certificates to those who pass such examinations as specified levels of attainments.
- To provide members with opportunities to meet for discussion of professional topics, and to pursue such other activities as contribute to the fulfillment of the purposes of the Guild.
BOEF Scholarship Program
The Knoxville Chapter of the AGO has established the Brock Organ Education Fund (BOEF) in honor of our colleague John Brock, long-time member and professor of organ at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
