Welcome to the official website of the Northeastern Connecticut Chapter of the American Guild of Organists! Founded in 1978 under the leadership of L. Cameron Johnson, we are a small but diverse group of professional colleagues and organ enthusiasts dedicated to the advancement of the organ and its music in Northeastern Connecticut. We invite you to consider joining us in learning and fellowship as a member of our chapter. Please check our calendar for upcoming events!
Celebrating 35 years in the AGO!
On Friday, October 18, 8:00 P.M. chapter members traveled to Methuen Memorial Music Hall in Methuen, Massachusetts for the Berj Zamkochian Memorial Organ Recital given by world-renowned organist Hector Olivera. Señor Olivera enchanted the audience with works by Bach, Franck, Daquin, Boëllmann and Widor. His final selection, an improvisation on a theme submitted by a member of the audience, was masterful.
This performance was part of the 150th Anniversary celebration of the Great Organ, which was originally housed in the Boston Music Hall in 1863.
Northeastern Connecticut Chapter officers were installed by visiting Regional Councillor Cheryl Duerr at our meeting on September 14, 2012.
