Welcome to the AGO Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter website, where you may find useful and regional information on activities about the grandest of instruments: THE ORGAN. Celebrating our 59th year (established, 1961), we invite you to browse the events calendar and resources here. Informative workshops, educational presentations, performances, tours, social events, and our periodic newsletter, VOX HUMANA aim to support all-things-organ. If you are currently seeking a national professional organization related to organ and choral fields, look no further! Our only criteria for membership is your interest in organ music.
