Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter
|Last updated: March 4, 2013|
Message from the Dean
|Hello and Welcome!
Thank you for visiting our website. We are in our 52nd year as an AGO Chapter. We are an active chapter which offers a variety of vibrant programs. Throughout the year, educational meetings, performances, and workshops provide knowledge of the organ and encourage excellence in performance. One of our cherished benefits is the friendship and support we derive from each other by being a smaller chapter.
If you are currently looking for a national professional association in the organ and choral fields, we look forward to hearing from you. All are most welcome to attend one of our upcoming meetings and to consider joining our chapter. Not only are our meetings informative, they’re also a lot of fun.
Membership information may be found below.
For more information, please contact our Chapter Dean, Nancy Brown (610-358-3112) firstname.lastname@example.org

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter was originally chartered as the Chester Chapter 1961. The name was changed in 1967, because many of the Chapter's members lived and worked in the surrounding communities, and it was felt that the new name would be more inclusive.
Since its origin, the SEPA Chapter has presented lectures, recitals, and workshops at monthly meetings. These programs teach, encourage, and support the church musicians and provide opportunities to develop friendships with fellow musicians.
The Chapter also prints a monthly newsletter, "Vox Humana", which keeps members informed of Chapter news and events, contains useful articles, and lists local job opportunities.
