OrganFest 2019: The Temple of Tone

OrganFest 2019: The Temple of Tone


OrganFest happens every two years thanks to the collaboration of three national organisations: the British Institute of Organ Studies (BIOS), the Incorporated Association of Organists (IAO) and the Royal College of Organists (RCO), the three UK bodies which represent organists and organ studies. OrganFest 2019 is the fifth OrganFest since the series was founded in 2014. The last OrganFest was in Hull in 2017, when it was UK City of Culture.

The Welsh capital will host OrganFest 2019. A biennial national event, OrganFest this year will be held at landmark churches in Cardiff, at the National Museum and at St David’s Hall, and a gala organ concert.

In ‘The Temple of Tone’, Robert Court (Cardiff University Organist) and Andrew Renton (Keeper of Art, National Museum Wales) illustrate the history of the Williams-Wynn Organ (1775, with later additions) which is housed in a Robert Adam case, and discuss some of the other exhibits in this remarkable Museum.

This is the final event in OrganFest 2019.
