The purpose of the American Guild of Organists (AGO) is to promote the organ in its historic and evolving roles, to encourage excellence in the performance of the organ and choral music, and to provide a forum for mutual support, inspiration, education, and certification of Guild members.
The Fort Worth Chapter was founded in 1929, is a part of the Southwest Region, and currently has about 150 members. The AGO is a national organization comprised of 19,000 members in 350 chapters, split into seven regions.. The national headquarters are located in New York City. The headquarters and all chapters are non-profit 501(c) (3) recognized organizations. The AGO was chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York and incorporated in 1896 as an educational organization.
