WELCOME TO SDAGO!
We are a gathering of people who enjoy the organ as a musical instrument in all the ways it inhabits our lives and the wonderful music that it makes. We gather to listen, to learn, to share and encourage each other. We are organists and non-organists and everything in between.
We are a chapter of The American Guild of Organists, a national organization that provides us resources, support, and connection with others who share our passion for “the king of instruments.”
Our mission is to bring the excitement and inspiration of the organ and its music to children and adults through events of education, entertainment and discovery.
