About Our Chapter
The San Diego Chapter of the American Guild of Organists takes great pride in its history and seeks innovative ideas to be a leader in promoting the organ, organ and choral music, as well as providing mutual support for organists and choral directors and nurturing future organists. Chartered on March 6, 1922 after being established as a "sub-chapter" in 1917, it is part of an international professional association serving over 19,000 members throughout the United States, Europe, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan and Sydney, Australia. The chapter hosted regional conventions in 1969 and 2001 and Pipe Organ Encounters in 1997, 2003, 2006, and 2009. Plans are well underway for a fifth POE in 2012. We are proud of the large number of young organ students who are being trained to become future organists by several of our chapter members.
