Message from the Dean
|WELCOME to East Carolina Chapter
The East Carolina Chapter of the AGO is home to many wonderful organs surrounded by gracious Southern hospitality. The Chapter’s membership is diverse and many come originally from other states, so it is a rather eclectic group of folks. We also welcome the organ students from East Carolina University in Greenville into leadership roles on the board of directors and enjoy their presence and the gifts they share as they join with us in membership. If you are moving to the eastern part of North Carolina and would like to join with us, please contact one of the board members. We will be happy to have you!
Soli Deo Gloria,
Dr. Marcia Heirman, DMA
Dean, East Carolina Chapter AGO
