Welcome to Oundle for Organists 2017
Oundle for Organists has been providing internationally recognised training for young organists for over 30 years. Many OfO alumni go on to reach the highest levels of the music profession; cathedrals, churches, conservatoires, choirs, and instrumental ensembles all over the UK and abroad employ musicians who have attended OfO courses. We invite many of our alumni back as tutors, showing our students what they can achieve in the future, having been a part of OFO.
Our courses provide inspiration and encouragement to organists at all levels. Whether you are just deciding to try the organ or already at the start of a professional career, OfO has something for you. Our courses are renowned for their friendly, fun atmosphere, and friendships formed during them can last a lifetime. Our course tutors are not only experienced professionals, but are also approachable and committed to helping students get the most out their time with us. We are dedicated to nurturing the next generation of musicians.
Each year we take our students to some wonderful venues in the surrounding area, last year our Summer School students enjoyed a recital at Ely Cathedral, and as always went to Cambridge to study on some of the wonderful organs in the colleges.
Whether you are a beginner or already earning your living as a professional organist, OfO 2017 offers something for you.
