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. 

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Alan Thurlow will be our guest speaker at Christ Church, Newtown,  Chester on Saturday 4th November  starting at 1:00pm  and ending at around  4.00 pm. Please note the start time. Dr Thurlow is the Chairman of The British Institute of Organ Studies and his talk will be on the development and work of that body.  After a break for refreshments  Dr Thurlow will make a second presentation on  Early English Organ Music.  There will, hopefully, be time for some questions from the floor.

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.
