Since the organ’s invention in the 3rd century BC, it has provided a magical gateway to the sacred and mysterious. Pipe organs are awe-inspiring architectural masterpieces, providing a rich and complex instrument on which composers and artists can work their craft. The list of organ composers is a who’s who of the most loved classical musicians — Bach, Handel, Pachelbel, Mozart, Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Saint-Saëns, to name a few.
The Denver Rocky Mountain Chapter of the American Guild of Organists is an all-inclusive social organization that provides education, resources, performances and events for organ music enthusiasts and professionals throughout the Colorado. We offer a gateway for aspiring musicians to learn the organ, provide scholarships and mentoring opportunities, and host a variety of events available to the public: see this year's program offerings.
The National Organization
The mission of the American Guild of Organists is to foster a thriving community of musicians who share their knowledge and inspire passion for the organ. Founded in 1896 as both an educational and service organization, the Guild seeks to set and maintain high musical standards and to promote understanding and appreciation of all aspects of organ and choral music.
