About our association .....
Welcome to all those who are fond of organ music or who are simply interested in it!
Richard DOTT, master organ manufacturer in Sélestat, Alsace (Alsatia-France), has built a 19-game organ with 2 keyboards and 1 pedal board in the St John the Baptist's church in Illzach. This little town is located in the suburbs of Mulhouse, about 30 km far from Basel (Switzerland) and Freiburg-in-Breisgau (Germany).
The "St John the Baptist's Organ Appreciation Society" aims at reaching several purposes :
- concerts organizing : organ recitals, organ with other instruments', and organ with voice or choir's
- welcoming of regional artists, as well as national famous ones or international performers coming from Germany, Switzerland, Belgium or other European countries
- encouraging and supporting young, talented, beginner musicians.
Each performance is shortly and lively presented.
Free entry, but a tray is passed around during the break as a quest (except for some special concerts with box-office).
All the concerts are announced on the website, but you can also be personally awared of it if you give us your email with following address : firstname.lastname@example.org
We also advise you to discover 2 short sequences from our first CD : Haydn's sonatas & divertimenti, recorded by Frank AGSTERIBBE (Belgium). You can order it too, using the address above.
We would be glad to welcome you in Illzach !!!
