The Central Iowa Chapter celebrated their highly successful membership campaign on Friday, May 19, with a members’ recital. Launching “Operation WIDOR” (Welcoming Individuals Drawn to the Organ Responsively) earlier this year, the chapter compiled a prospect list of more than 800 churches in the surrounding 12 counties. They sent membership brochures, as well as personal invitations to the recital, to the organists and music directors at those churches.
“We hope to reach musicians and individuals who may never have heard of the AGO, those who have never engaged with our organization, as well as lapsed members,” said chapter sub-dean Stephen Smith and secretary Ryan Frederick.
Central Iowa recitalists represented a wide range of ages, training, and experience to guests at a special members’ recital.
