A big congratulations to Elisa Williams Bickers, Bach Aria Soloists’ harpsichordist and pianist, who was recently named a fellow of the American Guild of Organists!
In addition to her work with BAS, Elisa is the associate director of music and principal organist at Village Presbyterian Church in Prairie Village, KS. According to Mark Ball, the church’s director of music ministry, there are only about 50 people who are AGO fellows in the U.S., and Elisa is only the second fellow in Kansas City.
For church musicians, the American Guild of Organists is our version of the American Bar Association to attorneys … This is a huge achievement for Dr. Bickers, and a tremendous honor for Village Church and for our musical community.
