CORONAVIRUS (Covid - 19)
Because of the current restrictions on public gatherings and performances, it is likely that very few organ recitals will take place over the coming months. We are trying to ascertain the status of forthcoming events and keep our website listing as up-to-date as possible, but are unable to take any responsibility for the accuracy of information in a fast-changing situation. In case of doubt, please contact recital venues directly for advice.
