Joplin Area Organist’s Association (2006)

Organs provide more than just blissful sound, they also have a rich, colorful history, especially in Joplin and its surrounding communities. The Joplin Area Organist’s Association (JAOA) seeks to educate residents about the organ while generating enthusiasm for this beloved instrument and its history. Aside from seasonal concerts, performances, and hymn festivals, this group also hosts organ crawls to discover local, antique organs and their fascinating histories. Anyone is welcome to join as long as they share a passion for organs and the music they produce.
