The three foundations Groningen Orgelland (celebrating its own 50th anniversary this year), Groningen Orgelstad and Erfgoedpartners have combined forces to organise with all the organ committees in the city and the province a whole host of joyful music events under the banner ‘Groningen Orgelzomer 2019’.
The Orgelzomer, or ‘organ summer’, will start on 29 July, the day after the anniversary of Schnitger’s death, with the official opening in the Der Aa-Kerk, and will end on 20 October with the stunning closing concert of the Schnitger Festival, which will also be taking place again this year.
