1914 to Today: We Celebrate Our Legacy

The Centennial Concert Series has ended. We presented six concerts showcasing the talents of our members, past and present, along with many other muscians. It was a wonderful experience and a fitting tribute to our legacy.

To all who attended, we hoped you enjoyed the performances. To all who contributed, thank you for your support. To all who performed, thank you for sharing your talents. To all who worked behind the scenes, thank you for your efforts.

What an exhilarating experience to chair the committee formed to plan and organize the celebration of 100 years of the AGO in Tennessee!

My thanks goes out to each member of the Centennial Committee! For the last four years, we have met, dreamed, pondered, investigated, written letters, made phone calls -- embroiled in the tremendous effort of planning a celebration of this magnitude.

We feel that our efforts have borne magnificent fruit, and present them to you in recognition of the importance of the American Guild of Organists to us as individuals, as members of one of the six AGO chapters in Tennessee, and as part of a great national organization.

These are exciting times as we celebrate our past, our present, and our future with the programs and events orchestrated by our Centennial Committee. Programs and events that highlight–

Composers long before our time,
and those in our midst

Young musicians whose musical journey
has been furthered by chapter scholarships

Performers from our chapter, our city,
our state; performers of world renown

Instruments that inspire us
and remind us of our reasons to celebrate

To the Centennial Committee, thank you for your tireless efforts to ensure a celebration worthy of our great organization.

To all who graciously donated, to the Centennial Fund thank you for your generous contributions. Without your financial support the events of this year would not be possible.
