ATLANTA IS PROUD to host the American Guild of Organists National Convention in the summer of 2020. With “A Kaleidoscope of Color and Sound,” we celebrate the diversity of experiences, races, ages, and cultures in Atlanta.
As the center of the Civil Rights movement, Atlanta made an impact on the world of culture and music. In this spirit, we are featuring historically significant venues, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s place of baptism and ordination, Ebenezer Baptist Church, as well as America’s oldest private historically black liberal arts college for women, Spelman College.
While in Atlanta, we hope you’ll take time to visit The King Center and the Civil Rights Museum, the Georgia Aquarium, and the Coca-Cola Museum, all just a short walk from the convention hotel. Atlanta also has many diverse neighborhoods just outside of the downtown area. Take a quick trip and explore this Southern “foodie” town.
Register early for the Atlanta AGO National Convention to take advantage of great early bird savings. The sooner you register, the more you will save! Though some venues are within easy walking distance from the hotel, we heartily recommend that you sign up for the bus transportation package to all venues when you register for the convention.
We are excited about showcasing a variety of worship experiences, world-class organists, fantastic instruments, and dynamic clinicians during our convention. We can’t wait to see you in our wonderful city and we plan to show you some of the Southern hospitality for which we are known! See you in July!
