About Us

We are a group of about 150 people from the Bristol area who like to share our enjoyment of the organ and its music.

There are no restrictions on membership: it is not necessary to be an organist, as we welcome all who are interested in the organ and its music, whether as players (all levels) or as listeners.

MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION

Affiliated to the Incorporated Association of Organists, We aim to promote the organ as an instrument of practical and versatile music making in church, chapel or concert hall.
