About Us

Have you ever noticed that:

  • women feature rarely in organ recital series?

  • the vast majority of organ association directors and members are male?

  • few female musicians hold cathedral, collegiate and church positions?

The Society of Women Organists (SWO) is dedicated to celebrating

female organists in all areas of music-making.

Our Vision

 

We will live in a world where women and men experience equal training, opportunities and encouragement, resulting in confident, ambitious and passionate players.

Our Mission

 

Our key objectives are to:

  • Support all female organists;

  • Promote women's activities in the organ world;

  • Recruit girls and women of all ages and backgrounds to study the organ.

Our Values

 

We are inclusive, empowering, challenging and open-minded. While supporting a meritocracy, we believe in giving girls and women an equal chance to excel as organists and succeed in the profession.

If you share our values then why not join us - membership is free!
