OfO is delighted to announce that a new series of 8 films is now available to view on our YouTube channel. Produced in partnership with the Royal College of Organists, with generous support from the Betts Fund at Oxford University, the series is entitled A Guide to Organ Scholarships: what to consider and how to prepare. The films are supported by a written document which can be found on the OfO and RCO websites, which gives lots of ideas for further study and textbooks.

POTS 2019 was a great success!

Welcoming nearly 30 students, Pulling Out The Stops 2019 was another fantastic course for OfO. The students ranged from 10-16 in age and had the opportunity to play on local organs in Oundle and the surrounding villlages, taught by esteemed professional organ musicians. Many were new to the course and playing the organ for the first time, thrilled us with their ability to take to the instrument and play so beautifully. Others were coming back to learn more and equally wowed us with their aptitude for developing technique and confidence, accentuated in the end of course concert at Oundle School Chapel.

SLIGHT CHANGE OF DATE - FOR GREAT REASONS!

We're putting together such a fantastic programme of visits for OfO Abroad that we need a few hours longer to squeeze it all in!
Potential applicants: the course currently is listed as ending on the 12th of April. We're extending things into that evening, so you'll want to stay on until the morning of the 13th. All your accommodation is covered in the course fee (as is food) so fear not: it won't cost you any more money, and it will also give you a better choice of flights. Applications are already coming in, and places are very limited. If you want to join us in Leipzig, Freiberg, and Naumburg, get us your application soon!
