The Kent County Organists' Association (KCOA) is affiliated to the Incorporated Association of Organists (IAO) and consists of almost 100 members. The object of the Association is to promote the friendly interchange of ideas on all matters of interest to organists and choirmasters. With the exception of August and December monthly meetings are held on Saturdays and include recitals, lectures, discussions and visits to places of interest in various parts of the county and sometimes further afield.
The Association welcomes new members with an interest in the organ and its music, also those who enjoy visiting churches with appreciation of architecture and heritage. Membership of the Association is not based on the ability to play; we welcome equally those who enjoy listening as well as those who enjoy playing.
