Cambridge Academy of Organ Studies – new organ competition12:08, 26th February 2018
10am-4pm, Friday 9 March, Jesus College, Cambridge (please note change of venue)
The inaugural CAOS Competition for Young Organists on 9 March will now be held at Jesus College, Cambridge. Jesus College has two organs of distinction: a two-manual Kuhn (2007), and the beautiful 1849 Sir John Sutton organ in a case by Pugin, restored by William Drake. The new venue offers competitors the challenge as playing on two different styles of instrument – one modern and one historic.
The masterclass on Saturday 10 March – led by David Titterington and Bine Bryndorf – will be held at Sidney Sussex College, giving outstanding young organists the chance to play on four different organs in total.
