Joyce Jones, FAGO, has devoted her professional life to making friends for the organ, through Community Concerts, countless organ dedications, children’s concerts, and “Access to Music” programs. Appearing for Community Concerts, she played many sold-out seasons as one of the few organists to take organ music to smaller towns across the USA. Dr. Jones retired in 2012 from her position as the Joyce Oliver Bowden Professor of Music and Organist in Residence at Baylor University. During her 43-year tenure there, she oversaw the expansion of the organ facilities and played the inaugural concerts on 5 major instruments at Baylor, where she also led 12 POE’s. This is her first time to give a workshop for an AGO national convention.
