Welcome to New Mexico!
The Albuquerque Chapter of the American Guild of Organists welcomes you to New Mexico – The Land of Enchantment! We live in a beautiful landscape of colorful evening skies, towering mountains and impressive mesas!
We are a multi-cultural state, the crossroads of three major cultures, and best known for our ancient Native American Pueblos and Petroglyphs, the Santa Fe Opera and markets, traditional Spanish Fiestas and southwest cuisine of Red and Hot Green Chile!
Poets and artists visit Taos for inspiration while film-makers discover the unique desert landscapes of Southern New Mexico.
Our music blends with this setting as we add the beauty of our organ pipes with the plaintive strings of the Spanish guitar or the quiet sound of the Native American flute, and the rhythmic chants of the Native American drums and singers.

From composer/member Fred Frahm: A new perspective for my Septem Verba (for organ and violin). In this sequence of images, the spectacular stations of the cross by Ruth Meredith, this music offers an underscore for contemplation.
