We are a local chapter of the national not-for-profit organization known as The American Guild of Organists (AGO). Nationwide and abroad there are approximately 300 chapters. Our chapter serves the Indian River, Martin, and St. Lucie counties of Florida and surrounding areas. Our members are professional musicians, educators, choir directors, and amateur organists and enthusiasts from all walks of life.

The Treasure Coast Chapter carries out the mission of the American Guild of Organists locally by sponsoring workshops, masterclasses, scholarship awards, recitals and other activities to promote the continuing education of organists and choir directors, as well as to create a fellowship of all people who love the organ and organ music throughout Indian River, Martin, and St. Lucie counties and surrounding areas.

April 2020: A Message from the Dean

Covid-19 Pandemic Cancellations

Hello Friends,


I truly hope you are well and staying safe.  Unfortunately, due to the pandemic we are going to cancel our organ crawl for this year and postpone our members recital, annual meeting, and dinner to a time when we can gather safely.  I do not know when that will be but I will keep you posted. Also I have been looking into doing a couple of Facebook live  or ZOOM events for the chapter and will update you on those soon. 


Stay healthy and Godspeed,

Andrew R. Galuska
