International Organ Week
From: 2013.06.21 To: 2013.06.30
Each year for ten days Nürnberg becomes the "centre of the organ universe". Initiated in 1951 by protestant musicians of the St. Lawrence and St. Sebald churches, International Organ Week is the oldest and most famous festival of sacred music in Europe. It features not only organ music but also choral and symphonic performances, academic symposia and presentations, and is accompanied (since 1968) by the International Organ Competition. Its venues are the churches of the Old Town, and also the Great Hall of the Meistersingerhalle – the city’s exquisite cultural centre.
