About Us

The Hawaii AGO Executive Board

Aloha and welcome to our website! We are a group of about 60 organists in Hawaii and have members on Oahu, the Big Island, Maui and Kauai. We are one chapter in an international organization, the American Guild of Organists, which has about 15,000 members. We are happy to report that organ music is alive and well in Hawaii! We are especially proud of our scholarship program, which to date has helped to provide organ lessons for over 70 students, ensuring the future of organ playing in Hawaii.

Walk into any European cathedral and it’s likely that you’ll see not only one, but perhaps two or more pipe organs in a single building. Why not play them together?

For the first time in Hawaii, concertgoers will have the rare opportunity to experience music for one, two and three pipe organs by Italian and German composers from the 16th through 18th centuries. Join organists Katherine Crosier, Jieun Kim Newland and Sachi P. Hirakouji in a delightful evening of organ solos, duets and even trios.

Suggested Donation $20. Proceeds will benefit the AGO Scholarship Fund and the Music Fund of the Lutheran Church of Honolulu
