This is one of three January Jubilee events sponsored this month by AGO chapters across the USA. The other two are being held the same day in Kansas City, Missouri and Duluth, Minnesota. January Jubilees exist to nurture the many part-time musicians working for religious institutions, introducing these musicians to the AGO and its work and mission, and encouraging them to become members of the Guild. Any AGO chapter can sponsor a January Jubilee with assistance from the national AGO.
