We are a local group of about 150 people 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 of all levels or as listeners. We aim to promote the organ as an instrument of practical and versatile music making in church, chapel or concert hall. We also produce a bi-annual Directory of B&DOA Members.
Throughout the year we arrange monthly events, which include visits to notable organs, some not normally accessible, both in and outside our area. We also enjoy talks, presentations, demonstrations, recitals and an Annual Dinner with guest speaker.
Our meetings are open to anyone who wishes to come along, because we are keen to encourage enthusiastic members of any age and endeavour to encourage their continued interest and skills in playing or listening to the organ, and of course, joining us as a member!
