THE FESTIVAL

As in every year in the month of October we celebrate the International Organ Festival of Vila Nova de Famalicão and Santo Tirso, an initiative that intends to highlight the importance of the organistic heritage of Portugal, gathering some of the most prestigious Portuguese and European artists in three parish churches of each council. Being itinerant and inclusive, the festival aims to visit besides the churches which conserves authentic organs – both historical and modern -, parish churches without organs, to which we bring a small organ so that a wider public can enjoy the opportunity to listen to a real pipe organ in their churches. This is the mission of our festival: create new audiences and democratise the excellency of organ music, and this is what converts the International Organ Festival of Vila Nova de Famalicão and Santo Tirso a reference in the international organistic scenario.
