A Message from Alan Thurlow, Our President
As President of the IAO, it gives me very great pleasure to welcome you to this the Home Page of our Website and to invite you all, music lovers and organists alike, to join me and other members of the IAO for some of our future activities, some of which are highlighted on the left.
We enjoyed the 2012 Congress in Cheltenham from 29th July to 3rd August 2012. Events are summarised here, and you can see some pictures by clicking the link above. The 2013 Congress is planned for Nürnberg in Germany. There are only a few places left: click on the 2013 Congress button on the left.
The websites of our affiliated local associations will let you know of the very many activities which they organise all around the country. Why not go along and see what they do?
The Yorkshire Organ Day took place on Saturday 12th May 2012 at Halifax Minster, with its wonderful Harrison and Harrison organ, plus the Early English Organ Project and contributions from Philip Tordoff, Dominic Gwynn, Tom Leech, Judith Blezzard, John Mander and Christopher Brown.
If you are interested in the world of the organ, whether as a performer, potential performer or listener, do please look through the contents of our website and be in touch with us if you would like to join us in our enjoyment of what Mozart called 'The King of Instruments'.
