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. 

On Monday 12 February, starting at 7:30pm,  we shall visit  Christ Church in Port Sunlight for an open console. The instrument is a 4 manual Willis II and is well worth visiting. Details of the organ nay be  found on the NPOR  and on the Willis website.  Directions to the church may be found here (at the bottom of the page). More details in the newsletter.


Our meeting on Saturday March 10th (2.00pm to 4.00pm) is a singing workshop led by
 Enid Whittle and takes place at  Hoole Methodist,  Church Chester.

The  2017-18 season is our twentieth year and the programme, which is available online, includes a number of "special" activities to mark this anniversary.  We shall be celebrating the twentieth "birthday" on the afternoon of May 19th  - please reserve that date in you diary now!
