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

Organ study trip to Germany | Schnitger and Schnitzels

Organ Club Study Trip to Germany

The Organ Club, founded in 1926, is a community of all who are interested in the organ and organ music, its players and its music.

The Club exists as a facility to promote awareness and appreciation of the art and science of the organ, its players and its music. Membership is open to all who are interested in these things!

Part of  The Club’s passion is to meet the aspirations of its members in promoting knowledge about organs, organ music and organ performance.

In 2013 they ran a club sponsored study visit to Hamburg and it was such a success that they are doing it again this year.

They are inviting organists of all ages and standards to come to Hamburg, Lübeck and Lüneburg for Student masterclasses and supervised “open console” sessions at celebrated historic and modern organs.

They have 20 places for the masterclass participants, but any number for the open console sessions.

The trip will run from 24 to 27 August 2015. (Organ Club – Germany trip Itinerary)

You will have expert guidance from lead-tutors:

James Parsons – Organ Club Vice President; Birmingham Conservatoire Tutor in Organ; RCO Head of Student Development; and international recitalist.

William Saunders – Director of Music at Royal Hospital School and international recitalist.

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.
