Our final event of the 2012–2013 season will be a dinner cruise on the Motor Yacht Affinity, a 120-foot vessel accommodating up to 149 guests. Fast becoming an annual tradition, our Chapter boat cruise features the wonderful scenery of New York Harbor, very fine food and drink provided by Affinity's catering team, including an open bar, and the company of your colleagues, the organists and organ-music lovers from the City and surrounding areas.
We regret no accomodation can be made for late arrival. For our suburban friends, we recommend the public transit, and leaving plenty of time, as road traffic approaching the City is notoriously unpredictable.
Tickets: NYC Chapter Members $75; all others $100
Pay by credit/debit card:
Pay by check: You may also send a check – made out to NYC AGO – to David Enlow, 119 East 74th Street, New York, NY 10021 postmarked on or before May 1st to guarantee your place.
