“That's the only requirement for membership in this society of friends of the organ. We are an international organization that seeks members from all levels of interest in the organ. Whether you simply listen enthusiastically or you play, build, or study the organ as an avocation or profession, the Organ Historical Society invites you to join. The Society promotes a widespread musical and historical interest in American organbuilding through collection, preservation, and publication of historical information, and through recordings and public concerts. ..
From a modest beginning in 1956, the Society has grown steadily in membership and is now an international group of music lovers, musicians, organbuilders, historians, and scholars. This growth, which has spread to other countries, is evidence that a significant step forward in musical culture and historical scholarship has been fostered since the Society's founding.
The Organ Historical Society is dedicated to documenting and preserving historic pipe organs and to raising public awareness and appreciation of America's organ heritage.“
