Organ Intensive

NEW! Organ Intensive Orvieto

Organ Intensive! June 16 – July 6, 2024 in Orvieto, Italy

NEW for 2024, a world first and unique offering to spend three weeks taking lessons with Riccardo Bonci and performing in the majestic Duomo of Orvieto where the 16th century organ is in impeccable condition.  This is an intensive three-week program for talented semi-professional organists interested in increasing their experience on a historic European instrument, learning in the Duomo with a change to play in one of the Liturgies and offer a short lunchtime recital on this magnificent instrument.  This is a rare opportunity to first perform on this instrument, but to also spend three weeks immersed in the  tuning, the artistic, the political and technical skills requisite in such a setting.

We are delighted to collaborate with the Curia and the Duomo to make this possible.

Lessons will be offered weekly and participants will be able to perform a 30 minute lunchtime recital as well as play for the Liturgy during this three-week program.

Participants will emerge from this program with increased knowledge of and experience with the liturgical and instrumental requirements, and get to truly experience a professional performance in this iconic setting.
