2020 is the festival Vox Organi’s third season, and a very special one, for it is the only festival taking place live and in front of an audience in spite of the Covid 19 – pandemic. Due to church regulations, Vox Organi – events will be musical evening services, placement restrictions, and all safety rules like hygiene and the wearing of facial masks will be strictly followed.

The festival’s artistic director is Director of Sacred Music Prof. Dr. Friedhelm Flamme, chairman of GFdO e.V., the supporting association of Vox Organi. (Please find a membership form here)

The greater Lower Saxon area that stands for the festival’s subtitle The Organ Festival In Lower Saxony holds, both in its larger cities and in its rural small towns and villages, a treasure of charming old churches where greatly unknown organs of major historical importance can be discovered. It is expressedly the festival’s goal to present these places and their instruments and thus to reawaken a public general interest in sacred places and sacred music. 

The list of participants is again a Who is Who of internationally renowned organists. Several events will, in addition to an organ recital,  have an additional program of Gregorian Chant music or a special soloist. 

Have fun and enjoy this very special festival season of Vox Organi 2020!
