The Toulouse International Organ Competition invites talented organists under the age of 30 to highlight the Toulouse organs of different aesthetics and eras. Its ambition: to encourage the design of artistically coherent programs, linked to a particular instrument, and having the concern of promoting the organ to audiences. Each candidate thus creates a musical program for the instrument of their choice, and plays extracts from it during the various selection tests. A way to highlight the rich heritage of Toulouse organs! Applicants must choose an instrument from one of the three categories of organs offered (old style, symphonic style and neo-classical / modern style). In the end, 3 laureates will be rewarded (1 per category) and will be offered a prize of 4000 euros and concerts in Europe. Characteristics of the Toulouse International Organ Competition
