“Membership in the AGO is a blessing in my life. It is a pleasure to connect with like-minded people and have opportunities to serve others and learn from them. I delight in associating with many fine people who are interested in improving their organ skills and increasing their knowledge, regardless of their levels of proficiency, as well as desiring to help others do the same. We often hear that it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it takes everyone’s help to have a successful chapter. Our wonderful members are exceptional at contributing to our success. I am a better person because of my association with the AGO.”

Sheri has organized organ competitions and recitals and organized and taught at organ workshops. She has had her work published in The American Organist magazine and has created a data base to catalog organ repertoire.
