Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis all the Scottish organists' societies affiliated to the SFO cancelled meetings until at least Autumn 2020 and probably longer.

With effect from 15th July 2020, the Scottish Government has sanctioned the resumption  of communal services of prayer and contemplation limited to 50 people, with social distancing, no singing or chanting (singing produces droplets of infection), a mandatory COVID-19 riskh assessment, and strict health and safety precautions.

The 2020 IAO Festival scheduled for JUly 2020 in Edinburgh is now planned for Friday 23rd to Tuesday 27th July 2021 - see News and Notices page.
