Berkshire Organists’ Association
Patron: Dame Gillian Weir
The Berkshire Organists' Association is proud to support the series of organ recitals on the historic Father Willis organ in the Concert Hall, ensuring that this important instrument is played and heard regularly.
Our association was formed in 1921 with the aims of promoting the art of organ playing, bringing the organ and its music to the public, and providing advice and support to players. We hold regular organ-related events monthly for members, including social gatherings and visits to churches, cathedrals and concert halls across Southern England. We also arrange public organ concerts in local churches.
New members, who need not be players, can be assured of a very warm welcome. We hope that anyone interested in the organ and its music will join us.
