November 16: Israel International Organ Festival Opens New Season in Haifa
The 2018-2019 season will be the 10th anniversary of the Israel International Organ Festival. For the course of 10 years the Festival organized 150 organ concerts performed by 53 organists from 15 countries.
This year Israel Organ Association, organizer of the concerts, added more music pieces originally written for organ and other participants: singers, soloist instrumentists, choirs and/or orchestras. Though the main focus will still be on the “king of the instruments” – organ.
Haifa citizens can enjoy rich repertoire every Fridays from November 2018 through to July 05, 2019.
The season will start on Friday, November 16 at 11.00 with Yuval Rabin (Israel-Switzerland), Musical Director of the Festival, who will perform pieces of François Couperin, a French Baroque composer, organist and harpsichordist
Traditionally the Haifa concerts take place at Hecht Museum Auditorium at Haifa University (Abba Khoushy Ave 199).
