The American Guild of Organists is a national organization headquartered in New York City with a membership of some 20,000 organists, choral conductors, church and synagogue musicians, organ builders, and organ “buffs,” each of whom is a member of one of 330 local chapters throughout the United States and as far away as Bermuda, Korea, Singapore, and even Australia.
The Denver Chapter of the American Guild of Organists has regular monthly meetings from September through June which vary from concerts and recitals to educational events and social gatherings. The Denver chapter, which was formed in 1936 and hosted national AGO conventions in 1968 and 1998, also regularly sponsors such educational activities as Pipe Organ Encounters and Pipes, Pedals, and Pizza for young people, professional AGO certification workshops for members, and master classes for performers of all ages. It also offers annual scholarships providing up to eight promising young area piano students with six free organ lessons each.

Historic Denver, Inc. will be hosting a continuing education (CE) class for real estate brokers at the Emerson School on Thursday, December 5. The class is entitled “Understanding & Selling Denver’s Historic Homes and Neighborhoods” and will explore the unique characteristics, values and strategies for buying and selling historic homes.
The course will provide an overview of major architectural styles seen in the Denver metro area as well as prominent local architects and their influence on Denver’s history. The course will also cover Denver’s historic neighborhoods, the rights and responsibilities of living in a historic home or district, and the financial incentives associated with historic property ownership.
The real estate industry is constantly changing and in order to stay on top of the trends, laws, contract changes and practice requirements, all active real estate brokers need to complete 24 hours of continuing education during each three year license cycle. Historic Denver has been approved to offer this three credit class by the Colorado Real Estate Commission.
