I had a nice note today from Alexia Jensen with the Canadian International Organ Competition. They happened upon this blog recently and asked if I could add a link for the CIOC at the bottom of the page. Of course I am glad to do so. From their website:
The Canadian International Organ Competition (CIOC) promotes organ
music namely by increasing public awareness and interest for this music.
The CIOC presents, every year in October, a festival with
some of the world's finest organists. Every third year, the CIOC
organizes an international competition in which a prestigious jury
representing various countries awards important prizes to a selection of
the best young organists in the world.
Seeking to actively participate in the
cultural life, the CIOC annually develops a programme of activities in
collaboration with various organisations of the organ world; these
musical and educational activities are designed to emphasize the
cultural importance of pipe organs – treasures of our heritage – for a
wide and diverse audience.
Every now and then I hear from someone who has discovered this blog and I am delighted. I am honored the CIOC is interested in promoting this blog in their on-line resources, and am happy to return the favor.
