Organ Tour Italia 2016

Musical Collaborations presents
Organ Tour Italia 2016
Sunday, June 26, 2016 - Saturday, July 2, 2016
Milan (Lake Como) - Pisa - Rome
For the 4th year of the Organ Tour program, we return to the Lake Como region to explore instruments in towns surrounding Lake Como including Varenna, Gravedona, Consiglio di Rumo, and Brenzio. Highlights on this trip include the opportunity to see and play Serassi instruments from the 18th and 19th Century as well as an Antegnati organ from the end of the 17th Century.
Each day, our group - made up of organists and pianists - will play diverse instruments of varying time periods under the musical guidance of Italian organist Ennio Cominetti. 

Concurrently with Organ Tour Italia 2016 is a new program, the Well-Tempered Clavier Seminar, a week-long seminar designed to give an in-depth look at Johann Sebastian Bach's monumental work from its historical perspective, analysis of the music content, and of course, actual performance of individual preludes and fugues. Entrance to all Well-Tempered Clavier Seminar masterclasses and events is included for all participants in Organ Tour Italia 2016.
