31st St Albans International Organ Competition and Festival: 5 to 16 July 2021.

Winners of the Competition were announced on Friday 16 July at 7pm, at St Albans Cathedral and online.

Due to the likelihood of ongoing restrictions on international travel, we made the regrettable decision that the Organ Competitions could not take place in St Albans this July.

Instead, we invited applications for a special online-only Interpretation Competition.

The application deadline was Thursday 1 April 2021.

The selected competitors were announced on 16 April. Read more…

The Interpretation Competition included a new commissioned work by exciting British composer Roxanna Panufnik.

The Improvisation Competition (Tournemire Prize) was not held in 2021.
