9th Waldkirch Organ Festival 13-15 June 2008
By Wolfgang Brommer
Dear organ friends: next weekend, June 13th to June 15th, 2008,
we will have the next big and unique 9th International Organ Festival
in Waldkirch. Maybe some of you will be here. A big program will be
starting Friday at 3 p.m. at Elztalmuseum, and Saturday and Sunday in
the whole town of Waldkirch and the workshops.
The theme this year is the French organ builders like Limonaire and
Gavioli in Waldkirch. Therefore the big Gavioli will be presented --
well restored -- during this weekend. More information will come soon.
In our place, the "Waldkirch Organ Foundation" and workshop of "Jaeger
& Brommer" will present a fine program too. We celebrate also our 20
years festival. A lot of work to do this week and we await the arrival
of Ron Bopp's Bumbling Bruder Tour 2008 on Wednesday evening here in
Four organilleros and chinchineros from Chile will also come over
to play their organs, and friends from France and all over Europe will
be here. Don't miss our festival. Pictures will be shown later.
