SOCA brings together church organists, church choir trainers and others interested in church music, choral singing, organs, and the art of playing the organ. Enjoy our recitals given by promising young local organists, amateurs and professionals, or perhaps volunteer to take part in one of our friendly composite recitals. A major highlight of the year is the SOCA Annual Lunch, to which a distinguished organist is usually invited as our guest speaker. Our programme of events is set out on the Our Calendar page of this website.
