The Orgelzomer Academy

Schnitger Meets… Masterclasses

It is Day 3, the day that the smallest Schnitger organ in the city will be taking part: the Pelstergasthuiskerk organ.

The organ in the Pelstergasthuiskerk

Every year the Prins Claus Conservatoire (PCC) organises the Orgelzomer Academy, a series of Masterclasses for young, talented organists from home and abroad on the famous Groningen organs. This summer course offers organ students a marvellous opportunity to play a historic organ, and the course is always heavily oversubscribed. In this special Schnitger year, the Orgelzomer Academy is an important part of the ‘Schnitger Meets…’ series. PCC and the Stichting Groningen Orgelland are combining forces to organise the summer course, expanding it to welcome no less than five top organists from Europe and Asia to Groningen, to give masterclasses to 35 international students,

On weekdays between 30 July and 7 August, different experts will give organ Masterclasses at different venues. Entrance is free for interested members of the public.

Today the Masterclasses are in the Martinikerk and the Pelstergasthuiskerk. The programme is subject to change.
