The RCO’s online Winter Conference returns to offer an experience for everyone with an interest in the organ and its music.
It runs from 14:00–21:00 (GMT) on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th February and from 10:00–21:30 (GMT) on Saturday 19th February 2022. The conference will be Online only so no need to travel and pay for accommodation.
The RCO and partner organisations present workshops on a huge variety of topics, some of which will be interactive and others in lecture-style.
Visit the Trade Fair to watch pre-recorded films from organ builders, music publishers, education providers, CD and DVD producers, organisations for organists and choral directors and more. Viscount Classical Organs are proud to support this important Conference and sponsoring two Organ Recitals.
Specially pre-recorded recitals, followed by live ‘meet the player’ sessions take place each day. If you can’t join live, then they will be available to view throughout the rest of the programme. Also watch the RCO’s A–Z of the Organ series as it plays on a continuous loop throughout the Conference.

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.
