Welcome from the Dean
Welcome to the website of the Grand Rapids Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. We hope you enjoy browsing through
--pictures and specifications of organs; the city of Grand Rapids certainly lives up to its reputation as a city of churches and a city of organs.
--the schedule of our monthly meetings. Everyone is cordially invited, and we invite anyone who is interested in the purpose of our guild, which is to promote the use of the organ in its historic and evolving roles. You don't have to play the organ to join our guild; many of our members simply love the instrument. You may also download our monthly newsletter, The Cipher. An archive of recent newletters is available here.
--and the information on the national organization of which we are a part. We hope to see you at one or more of our meetings this year.
