The 32nd St Albans International Organ Competition and Festival – celebrating our 60th year – will take place from 3 to 15 July 2023.

Applications are no longer being accepted for both the Interpretation and the Improvisation Competitions.

The deadline for applications was 17 March 2023.

The Interpretation Competition will include a new commissioned work by the celebrated British composer Judith Weir CBE, Master of the King’s Music.

The Improvisation Competition (Tournemire Prize) has been substantially redesigned for 2023 and will provide a fascinating test for all creative and fast-thinking improvising organists.

You can find all information concerning the competitions – including repertoire and prizes – from the menu to the right of this text (if you are using a desktop computer) or at the bottom of this page (if you are using a smaller screen).
