About Association of Organ Enthusiasts (AOE)

Back in the early eighties a group of music lovers, some organ players, some just listeners, got together to further their common interest. Such was their enjoyment, they soon wanted to share their new found pleasures with others - the seeds for the AOE were sown.

The AOE was formed to promote fellowship amongst organ enthusiasts and membership is open to all persons wishing to support this objective.

As a member of the AOE you will receive our quarterly newsletter, 'In Harmony', become eligible to join us at our residential Members Breaks held twice a year at the Mercure Kidderminster Hotel at Bewdley (DY12 1LA) in the West Midlands and have access to AOE merchandise. Some organ societies also offer reduced concert admission charges to AOE members, but above all you will be a member of the 'AOE family' and enjoy the friendship and company of others with similar interests whilst supporting an organisation committed to promoting interest and awareness of organs and organ music.

Membership costs just £6 per year (this covers all members registered at one address) plus a once only joining fee of £3 per person registered to cover the cost of badge, membership documents and initial administration.

Whilst residential places at the Members Musical Break (end of February/early March) and at the Members Summer Special (end of June/early July) used to be available to members only, now anyone wishing come along may do so and anyone booking an event will receive complimentary membership of the Association for that year. Visitors (members or non-members) are always welcome to come in for any of the concerts or daytime sessions.

If you would like to know more, or become a member, please contact George Ingley on 01384 274500 to request further details and a membership application form.
