Hello all! My name is Amy Lauren Jones, and I will serve this year as a member of the AGOYO board and new coordinator for this blog.
Midway through a piano performance degree, I discovered the organ and fell in love with the instrument. In 2015, I completed a B.M. in Organ Performance at Mississippi College as a student of Dr. Robert Knupp. This fall, I'll finish my M.M. in Organ Performance at MC and then pursue a doctorate in choral conducting. Until my grad recital on October 23, you can almost always find me practicing the "Wedge" and the rest of my rep.
Since 2015, I've served as the organist and assistant choir director at Fondren Presbyterian Church in Jackson, MS. After accompanying choirs at MC throughout my time as an undergrad and grad student, I will also accompany at Hinds Community College this year. As the AGO's district convener for Mississippi and co-editor of the Jackson Chapter’s online publication, The Continuo, I seek to encourage interest in the organ throughout the state.
You can reach me at email@example.com and feel free to add me on Facebook. I always enjoy connecting with other organists.
