The Bournemouth and District Association of Organists exists to promote classical organs and their music.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the organ and its music: players - from beginners to more experienced players, and non-players - who simply get great pleasure from listening.
The Bournemouth and District Association of Organists has been in existence since 1947 (possibly earlier).
Areas covered by the Association are generally south-east Dorset and south-west Hampshire. This includes Poole, Bournemouth and The New Forest.
Part of the Association’s objectives are "to advance the education of the public in the study of the art of music with special reference to liturgical and organ music".
A meeting is held on most months during the year, ranging from arranged talks, visits to local organs, an annual full day outing to a major venue and an Annual Dinner. In recent years, we have been pleased to enjoy trips abroad:
