Organ Week

High School Camp

Organ Week is designed for high school students interested in expanding (or beginning) their organ study. Led by a faculty of prominent concert and church organists, the program features one-to-one instruction, masterclasses, and recitals on the finest pipe organs in northern Colorado, including CSU’s Casavant organ.

Study the art of organ building, develop skills in choral conducting and harpsichord, and improve your organ playing with a faculty of concert organists including Ken Cowan and CSU’s chair of organ, Joel Bacon.

Organ weeks have a long history at CSU since the years when professor Robert Cavarra invited organists such as Marie-Claire Alain, Luigi Tagliavini, and Anton Heiller to give week long courses to capacity audiences. The festivals brought organ students from across the country, ideas were exchanged, insights were made, and great music filled the city!

Concerts feature world renowned soloists performing major solo and collaborative works.


Dates: June 11-16, 2023

Cost: TBA (2022 prices: $300/commuter, $400/resident)
