We are an association for all those who love to hear and play the organ, and enjoy choral music.  

We hold a variety of events including talks, recitals and often there is an opportunity for those attending to play the organs we visit.  We arrange visits to churches, chapels and other locations in the West Cheshire, Wirral and North-East Wales to see and hear interesting instruments.  We produce a monthly newsletter with items of interest to our members.
