Come meet the AGO's current roster of "Rising Star" performers, each a featured artist at this convention. Winners of the 2015 AGO/Quimby Regional Competitions for Young Organists, these seven developing artists represent a vital cross section of our Guild's younger membership and, most importantly, ourorganization's vibrant future. Listen in as 2009 "Rising Star" Jacob Street interviews these exceptional young artists -- learn about how they became organists, what their pre- (and post-) performance rituals are, and how they envision the future of our profession and our instrument. Finally, have a chance to ask questions yourself!
