OrganFest 2020 was born out of disappointment at the unfortunate need to cancel the AGO National Convention that was to have taken place in Atlanta in early July. The AGO decided that, instead of simply changing to a virtual format and charging participants, we wanted to create an online organ festival as a gift to our community:
- A gift of beauty in an otherwise chaotic time
- A gift that would be accessible to all free of charge.
OrganFest 2020 will take place July 20-24. Each evening’s broadcast will premiere a new work which had been commissioned for the 2020 National Convention in Atlanta, accompanied by interviews with the composers. Each evening’s performance will also include performances by recent international organ competition winners. The Festival website has the full schedule of events for each evening.
We look forward to sharing this event with you this coming week:
July 20-24 – 6pm Mountain Time
