The Complete Organ Works of Bach in 24 Hours

by Alice Oates

Bach for ZambiaThe complete organ works of Bach are a huge undertaking. On the 22nd-23rd June, noon until noon, a team of organists will join together to perform them over the course of 24 hours on one of the only organs in Cambridge with pipes that were in place when Bach was alive.

Highlights will include:
• Anne Page performing the complete Art of Fugue at 6pm on the 22nd
• Benjamin Sheen performing the complete Clavier-Übung III at 8pm on the 22nd

The event aims to bring together organists of all standards, including professional concert organists, Directors of music, organ scholars and school children. If you are an organist and are interested in participating, email arel2@cam.ac.uk.

Admission to the event is free, and refreshments will be available to purchase all through the night. There will be beanbags, and audience members are more than welcome to bring sleeping bags!
