About Us

Have you ever noticed...

...that women feature rarely in organ recital series?

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

...that 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.


By raising awareness of women organists, we aim to:

  • support all female organists;

  • promote women’s activities in the organ world;

  • recruit girls and women to study the organ.

We are very pleased to have recently reached over 100 members!

Thank you for your support.
