The NYCAGO Board has established a committee to address issues of diversity within the Chapter. The committee members are Janet Yieh, Sam Bartlett, Nathanial Gumbs, and Larry Long. In observance of National African American (Black) History Month, the Committee has compiled a list of resources for organ music by African-American composers.

Please consult this useful list available here. It will remain available on our Chapter website as well. If members know of other works, please email them to Larry Long, and they will be added to this list.


If you have any questions about the AGO website or to submit additions to the NYCAGO Concert Calendar, please email Sam Bartlett at samueldavisbartlett@gmail.com.
