September 2017 Dean’s Message


Greetings to all of our members, friends and supporters of the Queens Chapter of the AGO. I hope everyone had a relaxing and rejuvenating summer.

September is here and it is time to start up choirs, prepare music for the upcoming seasons and get back into the general swing of things. We had a very good year last year with some very interesting presentations, workshops and performances as well as several social gatherings. There are some great events planned already for this season. Details will be forthcoming.

Our first event is the annual “welcome back” September Social.

This year, the event will be held on: Monday, September 25 at 7:00 pm at: Church of Saint Teresa 50-20 45th Street, Woodside NY 11377 (718) 784-2123

Steven Petersen, Music Director at St. Teresa’s, has graciously agreed to have his parish host our event for this year. The church is near Queens Blvd. and also the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. There is a parking lot on the property. This year the gathering will be a pot-luck event, so please RSVP as soon as possible with what item you would like to bring.

Thank you to all those who have renewed their memberships and I would like to offer a gentle reminder to those who have not renewed as of yet to please consider doing so. Please feel free to bring a friend or someone who may be interested in joining our chapter. All are welcome.

And please come and share your ideas and suggestions, if you have any, for our chapter for the new season.

Please RSVP to Jim Millen as soon as possible so that we may make adequate preparations.

The RSVP email is: Or by phone at: (516) 312 - 5040

Thank you for your past and future support and I hope to see all of you there on Monday the 25th at 7:00 pm.


Jim Millen Dean, Queens AGO
