Ventura County Chapter
|Last updated: February 6, 2013|
Message from the Dean
|Welcome to the Region IX chapter serving the southern Gold Coast of California. Ventura County is just northwest of Los Angeles. We have members residing in Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Camarillo, Oxnard, Ventura, Santa Paula, and Ojai.
We are always looking for new members - organists, choir directors, and others who appreciate excellent music. There are no entrance requirements, and the annual dues support local chapter activities as well as national AGO resources. Each year, we award scholarships to deserving students in the county. This financial aid assists them with organ lessons, music, and even proper shoes.
We encourage you to bring family and friends to our events and enjoy congenial fellowship along with excellent music.

If you play the organ, no matter at what skill level, or you would like to add organ study to your piano or synthesizer skills, please contact us. We have an active program of placing practice organs in the homes of needy and promising students, so please ask.
