We represent a diverse group of people who have in common a passion for organs and organ music. We include professional and amateur organists who play and enjoy organ music from the most ancient to the most modern. Our community contains a tremendous variety of organs in churches, synagogues, concert halls, theaters, and residences.

Through our AGO Chapter, we provide a wide range of programs to educate, inspire, and involve our members and the community in the love of the organ and organ music.

Our current newsletter, March/April 2015, is online.

Space is limited, so please RSVP Matthew at matthew@ccpvw.org one week prior. Please bring laptops and/or tablets/smartphones and tell him whether you have any dietary restrictions -- other than vegetarian. (He is a consummate chef, as well as teacher.)
