Schnitger Festival


This year the Schnitger Festival will be the grand finale for the Orgelzomer Groningen 2019, and we are in for a treat. Besides organ recitals from world-famous organists such as Arvid Gast and Bart Jacobs, the festival will again be presenting a number of surprising cross-over productions, in which the historic organs will be played in exciting combinations with other instruments and acts, catering for all tastes!

For example Urban House Groningen will be organising a workshop with Groningen schoolchildren in the Pelstergasthuiskerk in which they will produce and perform an Urban dance act; or take Age-Freerk Bokma’s avant-garde organ recital in the Lutherse kerk (Lutheran church). And otherwise the concerts given by big names such as the Drents blues musician and all-round artistic wonder Daniël Lohues, who -together with Holland Baroque- will set off in search of his great inspiration Bach, or the world-famous Tenebrae Choir from Britain directed by Nigel Short, who will perform Schütz, Bach and Reger for us. Browse the programme and take your pick!
