2024 American Guild of Organists Award Recital and Gala

April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The 2024 AGO Endowment Fund Distinguished Artist Award will be presented to the Chenaults at the AGO Gala on Friday, April 26, at St. Philip’s Cathedral (2744 Peachtree Road NW) in Atlanta.

The Cathedral is delighted to serve as host of the 2024 AGO Gala honoring the beloved Atlanta Chenault Duo, who have contributed more to the corpus of organ repertoire for four hands and four feet than every other organist in the history of the instrument, combined. This will be an incredibly special evening of magnificent music and musicianship, and a celebration to remember!

The celebration begins with a recital of organ duets by the Chenaults. Included on the concert will be the world premiere of In Memoriam by Nicholas White, commissioned by the Chenaults in memory of Rachel Laurin and Charles Callahan.
A gala benefit reception supporting the AGO Endowment Fund follows (advance tickets required). Guests will enjoy champagne and hors d’oeuvres with Beth and Ray and the AGO National Council.

The AGO Gala travels around the country to celebrate distinguished members of the organ world, to raise awareness for the Endowment Fund, and to secure gifts to strengthen it. All income from this Gala will be invested in perpetuity; annual earnings will support AGO educational programs.
