Organs, organ music and organists around the world will be celebrated in a week of online broadcasts leading up to interNational Organ Day on Saturday, April 24.

With pandemic restrictions still in place, The Royal College of Organists has turned interNational Organ Day 2021 into a online event, and made it the culmination of a week of broadcasts running from April 18 to 24.

The Organ Show will be a week of live daily programmes featuring a mix of interviews, chat, features and studio guests.

RCO Chief Executive Sir Andrew Parmley and British soprano Cheryl Enever will present the shows, with organist and broadcaster Anna Lapwood joining them as guest interviewer.

The week has been designed to inspire non-organists to engage with the organ, seek out organ music and events, to learn to play, and to support the work of the RCO in developing new generations of musicians and enthusiasts.
