Organist’s space: events, organ travels and player stories

RCO Academy – The Organ Scholar Experience 2016

RCO Academy TOSE 2016

There are some organ recitals I thought I would let you know about which you can attend in the summer in Cambridge.

As you will know, the Royal College of Organists (RCO) run an Academy programme to train young organists. Each summer they run ‘The Organ Scholar Experience‘ (TOSE), a residential course for young organists. Members of the public are invited to attend the recitals – most of which are free.

Here are a list of the recitals that are coming up, as well as some details around them. Choral Services will be directed and performed by students – who will sing, accompany and conduct.

If you are interested in the Organist Scholar Experience programme itself – then please do look at the RCO Academy website for more details.

I have had a passion for church organs since the tender age of 12. I own and run Viscount Organs with a close attention to the detail that musicians appreciate; and a clear understanding of the benefits of digital technology and keeping to the traditional and emotional elements of organ playing.
