Please consider joining us to remember our friend Robert Byrd – Organist, organ builder, tuner, student of Fenner Douglass at Duke University. Because of the unprecedented weather, the event planned for January 27 has been postponed. The memorial concert will be held on Tuesday, February 3 at 7 p.m. at Old West Church, 131 Cambridge St, Boston.

For many years, this chapter has hosted a competition for young organists, which is a part of the AGO/Quimby Regional Competitions for Young Organists. They are made possible by a generous grant from Michael Quimby, President, Quimby Pipe Organs, Inc. In 2015, our competition has been scheduled for next spring on April 11. The location will be announced in the near future. I am pleased to announce that we have three stellar competitors, so check in again for details.
