The Organ Artists Series (OAS) Committee hosts world-renowned performers at concerts in Pittsburgh several times each year. Over a hundred organists have visited Pittsburgh in the past 35+ years under the sponsorship of this series. Visit that link for information about these special concerts.

Monthly updates of local concerts and events are listed in the Noteworthy Events section of the regular Chapter Newsletter. Planned season schedules are listed at Concert and Recital series.

Check the Pictures of Recent Events for some great pictures of recent concerts and meetings!

PITTSBURGH CHAPTER

Summer Break

The Regular monthly AGO Chapter meetings don't happen in the summer months (June, July and August) to give everyone a respite from their busy schedule. Be on the lookout for:

  • The Organ Artists Series mailings for the upcoming season, usually in the mid-late August time frame - you'll have an opportunity to pre-order season tickets as well as financially support this great series. The web site (www.oas-series.com) will be updated in mid-summer with the new season info if you can't wait for a peek!
  • OnCard - The new on-line AGO renewal system should have now sent notices to all current members. If you've not got your renewal contact the registrar. If you'd like to join, contact the registrar or any chapter officer or committee member for help. By joining you'll get regular invitations to monthly dinners which include useful seminars, recitals, the Chapter newsletter as well as the national publication The American Organist.
  • September newsletter and magnet- The September newsletter, issued by early September, will have a complete listing of the upcoming season of Chapter meetings, locations and topics for the meeting. You'll also get the popular 'refrigerator magnet' that has the upcoming seasonal schedule of meetings including the Organ Artists Series Concert. This meeting information will also be published on the web in advance. Not a member? Think about attending as a guest, they're always welcome. Just be sure to make a dinner reservation in advance and you can sit down with colleagues, enjoy a good meal and professional exchange of ideas.



Never come to a Chapter meeting before? Worried that it's stuffy and you won't know anyone? Don't know why you should come?

Be just and fear not! The Pittsburgh AGO Chapter is a friendly group that starts off the meeting with chit-chat around 6PM and has a wonderful buffet dinner (feel free to get a second helping!) every month (only $15). Dieting? Skip the dinner and come for the program; it's free and a benefit to you as a member.

Reservations are required if you're coming to the dinner; you can make one at www.pitago.org (the Dinner Reservations link above/left) or contact reservations@pitago.org if you need more information or to make your reservation.

Do something different in the New Year and come to the meeting - you'll be glad you did!
