Founded in 1952 by pipe organ music enthusiasts. The Organ Society of Queensland aims to promote an appreciation of organ music and organs in the community, and to provide an avenue for discussion of matters of mutual interest to organists.
The Organ Society of Queensland wishes to encourage all people to study the organ, particularly in the special art of organ playing.
We share a great enthusiasm for the organ and organ music, whether you are starting the instrument, or wishing to advance your studies.
Our vision is to improve the public appreciation and understanding of the organ.
Membership is open to all who are interested in furthering these aims, organists and listeners alike.
Activities of the OSQ include organ concerts, talks and workshops on organs and organ music, performance of organ music in various contexts (church music, concerts, etc), organ building, and other related topics; organ rambles i.e. inspection visits to organs in various localities, plus CD/DVD functions and Special Events.
