This year Melksham Electronic Organ Society celebrate their 25th Anniversary. Melksham House was the venue for the inaugural meeting of the Avon Electronic Organ Club and the membership reached 56 in the same year. This was twenty-five years ago and today, renamed Melksham Electronic Organ Club they can now boast a membership of 192.
It is estimated that in excess of 30.000 people have enjoyed the concerts over the past quarter of a century. Every third Tuesday of the month sees concerts held in the Melksham Assembly Hall. Visiting artistes consider this venue one of the best in England.
To celebrate this 25-year milestone, a Gala concert has been arranged to take place on Tuesday the 17th of March 2009 featuring Robert Wolfe, recognised as one of the leading Interpreters of the theatre and Electronic Organ.
The popularity of this famous artiste will attract a great following and for this reason advanced ticket purchase is recommended. If you would like to join them, tickets are available from the secretary and details of the club can be found in the OrganFax Directory.
