Welcome to the Official Website of the Low Country Chapter of the American Guild of Organists
We are located on the sunny southeast coast of South Carolina and cover several counties including Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton with members throughout the area.
We hope that you use our website to find out more about us, about our programs, and about our area. Many fine musicians call the Low Country their home and we are proud to number them among our members and friends!
