About EOA


The Association aims to provide a friendly and relaxed forum for all those with an interest in the organ and its music. The membership, currently around 120, includes professional musicians, amateurs of all abilities and non-players with musical interests in many fields.

The programme of events reflects the wide range of members’ interests. Providing help and encouragement to young organists and students is seen as a vital and growing area of the Association’s activities.

Helping members to develop their skills and knowledge is an important aim of the Association and the Committee makes every effort to meet members’ needs in this area.

Our events provide ample opportunity to meet and keep in touch with other musicians and exchange views on trends and developments in the organ world. The aim is to provide meetings which are stimulating, informative, social and above all, enjoyable.

Non-members are always welcome at EOA events.

Whether your main interest is in developing your skills as a musician, increasing your knowledge in related fields, or meeting others with a common interest, you will receive a warm welcome in the Association.
