About Sutton in Ashfield Electronic Organ Society

The Society which was originally known as the Sutton and District Organ Society was formed in 1970 by a group of enthusiasts when the electronic organ was a very popular instrument. It was in 2013 when the Society became known as the "Sutton in Ashfield Electronic Organ Society".

By comparison to the pianoforte it was thought to be easier to get a melody and an acceptable sound from the organ.

The modern electronic organ is very complicated, costing from a few hundred to thousands of pounds. A good knowledge of music and   needed to play the intrument to its full potential.
