Further Inspirational Events
« on: September 30, 2011, 03:26:39 PM »
Hi

Whilst not directly related to the Zurich Symposium, Connecting Arts is billed as an European Organ Festival linking organ music with other art disciplines including visual arts, theatre, dance, etc.  First event is in Utrecht on 2nd October, then Toulouse, Copenhagen, Helsinborg, Malmo & Kristianstad (May 2012).  See http://connectingarts.org/en.html

Pity it's not coming to England!

Every Blessing

Tony
