The Durham Chapel Hill chapter presents a program of events every year featuring performances, recitals, workshops, and discussions on a wide variety of topics related to the organ and/or choral music.

Who We Are

Executive Board

Our Executive Board is committed to the well being and growth of this Chapter. In addition to overseeing the Program, Development, Education, and Outreach Committees, this team of volunteers has recently held brainstorming sessions to discuss the needs, goals, and desires of the Chapter's membership as a whole. The board is continually striving for creative ways to engage members, build stronger relationships with the community, provide support for young organists, and build a vision for the Chapter's future. 

Member input and involvement is strongly encouraged. There are many ways to get involved and volunteer within this Chapter, one of which is to serve on a committee. Find out more about ways you can get involved and serve this community.
