About AMOS

The Australian Mechanical Organ Society Inc is a non profit organisation with the purpose of bringing people with an interest in mechanical musical instruments together. Our members are dedicated to the enjoyment of self playing organs and associated items through their preservation, restoration, building & research. Ownership of an organ is not required to be a member, anyone who is interested in mechanical musical instruments is encouraged to join. The Society has an annual rally, usually over a weekend in October, at a different location each year. Usually this consists of playing for the Public, an Annual Dinner, a barbeque, and an AGM at which the Committee for the following 12 months is elected. A key feature of our rallies is the chance to socialise with other members. Other events are organised from time to time.
