Tour Bach’s Organ World, July 17-28

Noted organist Lee Ridgway leads this year’s tour to cities and organs with connections to J. S. Bach, as well as other organs of historic importance. The tour is centered around Dresden, Leipzig, Wittenberg, and Berlin, with day trips to Naumburg, Halle, Altenburg, Störmthal, and Tangermünde. Organs include instruments by Silbermann, Scherer, Ladegast, and Sauer. Of particular importance are organs by Hildebrant and Trost which Bach played and knew well.

The tour, of which this is the 5th edition, originated with Quentin and Mary Murrell Faulkner, who asked Lee to take over in their stead. Lee participated in two previous tours, and has extensive experience with historic organs in Europe, including those on the tour.

Time is built into the schedule for organists to play the instruments, as well as hear about their history and restoration. But the tour is not only for organists! It is for anyone interested in historic cities, churches, and organs, and in seeing the magnificent attractions of eastern Germany reborn since reunification. Plenty of time is in the schedule for sightseeing.

The well-organized tour includes stays in mostly 4-star hotels, many meals, city tours of Dresden and Berlin, and more. Accompanying the tour is English-speaking German guide, Lothar Mohlmann, who also assisted with the previous four tours.
