AGO events for the 2018-19 season:

 

September 10, Monday, 7:30pm ~ Opening Service

Our opening service and installation of officers will be held at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, located at 147 NW 19th Avenue in Portland.  Our Chaplain Don Freuh and incoming Dean Bruce Neswick will lead us in joyful worship as we celebrate the new year and get updated on the chapter's and guild's activities from the last year and for the upcoming year.  There may be more details coming about this event, so keep returning here for the latest news.

September 15-16, Saturday/Sunday ~ Orgelkids Encounter

Come visit us at OMSI for their 2-day Makers Faire.  Chapter members will assist Eugene's Orgelkids coordinator to share the joy of assembling a tracker organ to the masses.  Orgelkids is a program whereby people of (almost) all ages can assemble a table-top organ together together with almost no tools in a short amount of time and play the cute instrument when they're done; it can then be quickly disassembled and reassembled all over again.

October 13, Saturday, 9am-6pm ~ ALCM Church Music Conference

Local members of ALCM are presenting a 1-day conference at St. Andrew Lutheran Church at 12405 Butner Road in Beaverton.  Hearts/Hands/Voices is co-sponsored with Portland AGO, and there is a special registration discount for AGO members (please email Heidi Kohne at kohneheidi{at}gmail{dot}com for the link).

October 27, Saturday, 6pm ~ Phantom of the Opera with David Briggs

Relive the glory days of the silent movies with a special showing of the original Phantom of the Opera movie, complete with live organ accompaniment.  David Briggs, orginally from Britain but now is Artist-in-Residence at St. John the Divine Cathedral in New York City, will improvise on the mighty Rosales while we watch the 1929 classic movie.
