Madeira Organ Festival
It’s the fifth edition of a unique festival, with singular features and already consolidated audiences. The quality of its programme makes it an exceptional event in our annual calendar, enriching local cultural offer, during the autumn season, especially to all of those who visit Madeira in this specific time of the year.
The Organ Festival was conceived five years ago under the "Madeira Cultural Festivals” project-brand (MCF), as an outcome and conclusion of an extensive restoration process of the Region’s organs heritage. With precious testimonies coming from the Iberian, Italian and English “organaria” - historic organs existing in the churches of Madeira, the festival offers the possibility of listening to these exquisite instruments, combining it with the skills of renowned organists, who perform diversified repertoires from the 16th to the 20th centuries. All of the different audiences that attend and crowd these venues, may experience moments of undeniable beauty and artistic musical quality, where the best European music comes together in harmony with the island’s cultural heritage (architectural and decorative, religious painting and sculpture).
To qualify and diversify the cultural offerings is the main goal of MCF’s project, promoted by the Regional Secretariat for Culture, Tourism and Transport, and the Madeira Organ Festival, the event that plays a major role in that promotion, broadening the Region’s artistic and cultural identities in a wider cultural tourism market.
