Festival: St Albans International Organ Festival

Biography

July 8 – 20, 2019

The St Albans International Organ Festival presents arguably the world’s leading organ competition. Its roll-call of past prize-winners includes many of today’s most influential organists.

For two weeks the biennial festival celebrates organs and a lot more besides. Its diverse mix of large-scale and intimate concerts, talks, workshops, art exhibitions and fringe events offers something for everyone and complements the St Albans International Organ Competition itself. Events are centred around the magnificent Norman cathedral of St Albans and spread out all around this beautiful historic city, which is just 20 minutes by train from London.

Important venues in London host additional competition rounds and performances.

The festival attracts leading performers from around the world together with very best young organists, specialising in improvisation as well as interpretation. It was founded in 1963 by the late Peter Hurford OBE. The Festival will take place for the 30th time in 2019.
