Summer Organ Improvisation School 2017
Organ Improvisation with Ansgar Wallenhorst:

Models of Creativity in Liturgy and Concert

St Patrick’s College, Maynooth
Monday 17th July – Tuesday 18th July – Wednesday 19th July

This workshop is open to organists at every level of ability who wish to develop their own creativity in improvisation either in the context of liturgical services or in concert performance. With a combination of group work in the mornings (9.30-12.30) and individual lessons in the afternoon (lesson times to be finalized with each participant), the workshop will be adapted to the abilities, tastes and preferences of the individual participants.

Participants are invited to bring music which they already play or are learning as an indication and basis for developing according to their own level and stylistic preferences. Organists of all standards are welcome to apply, either as active participants or as auditors. The course will also be of interest to students of composition and improvisors on other instruments.
