International Baroque Organ Festival  2017

International Baroque Organ Festival 2017

The 24rd International Baroque Organ Festival (25 October–6 December) features 20 concerts and 5 master classes on organs of Mexico City, Puebla, Tlaxcala and Oaxaca.

Mexico’s International Baroque Organ Festival –Festival Internacional del Órgano Barroco– was first established in 1993 with the aim of recovering and disseminating the culture of the country’s historical organs . The purpose of the festival is to foster the reuse of these instruments in order to raise awareness of the importance of this heritage and of the need to strengthen strategies for encouraging them to be studied, restored, properly used and preserved. The festival brings organ music closer to the general public, scholars of art history, musicians from all disciplines and, of course, organists. It has been and still is an open forum in which leading national and international organists have taken part and has provided a space for presenting new generations of Mexican organists. 

With the support of AC/E, Spanish organists  José Luis González Uriol, Javier Artigas and Pedro Alberto Sánchez.
