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. 

Our April meeting is on Tuesday  April 17 at Chester Cathedral starting at 7:30pm.  Philip Rushforth will give us an update on the Organ Appeal and we shall have a close look at the chamber organ in the Lady Chapel; the cathedral organ  will also be available.  Please go to the main public entrance of the cathedral and be there before 7:30pm otherwise you are in danger of being locked out!
