St. Vitus Organ Evenings - Olivier Penin

The Metropolitan Chapter of St. Vitus in cooperation with the Prague Castle Administration is organising the thirteenth edition of the International Organ Festival in the St. Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle under the title St. Vitus Organ Evenings. The project is a prestigious cultural event of this summer and of the peak tourist season. The intention is to give those interested in organ music a unique experience of the sound of the unique romantic organ by Mölzer in the monumental architecture of the cathedral and a unique impression of the huge magical space resounding with four and a half thousand pipes.
