Who Are We?

Who Are We?

The Southern African Church and Concert Organists’ Society (SACOS) bevorder musiek-, liturgiese en orrelboupraktyke in Suidelike Afrika deur kerk- en konsertorreliste, predikante, musiekgroepe, kerkrade en orrelbouers te ondersteun om funksionele, relevante en geïnspireerde diens te lewer. Dit bring orreliste en ander belangstellendes vakkundig met mekaar in kontak, en verskaf vakwetenskaplike inligting en advies. SAKOV tree verder adviserend op en poog om verantwoordelike riglyne neer te lê en aanbevelings te maak – ook ten opsigte van salarisse en dienskontrakte van orreliste.

Since its establishment on 10 May 1980, SACOS has regularly published an accredited subject journal, Vir die Musiekleier / To the Director of Music, as well as newsletters. Tutorial courses are offered annually in the thirteen SACOS districts in South Africa and Namibia, and special projects, such as providing publications and recordings, are launched. SACOS members are exposed to the latest information and news to do with organ music.

Met byna 600 lede is SAKOV ‘n tuiste vir alle orreliste en orrelmusiekliefhebbers!
