CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has caused all the meetings of the affiliated Scottish organists' societies to be cancelled for the remainder of the 2019-20 session.

The Incorporated Association of Organists Music Festival scheduled for July 2020 in Edinburgh has been postponed until July 2021.  IAO President Dr John Kitchen MBE, Immediate-Past-President of the Edinburgh Society of Organists, Edinburgh City Organist, Director of Music Old Saint Paul's Episcopal Church, Edinburgh said recently that The plan is simply to move the festival forward one year and hold it here in Edinburgh in July 2021.  Obviously, various aspects will have to be renegotiated but I hope that all my careful planning can be more or less kept in place and that the programme next year will be very similar.
