Haarlem has three famous organs: the Müller organ in the Grote Bavo, the Cavaillé-Coll organ in Phil. (formerly Philharmonie) and the Adema organ in the Dome Cathedral of Haarlem. You will play these organs during the summer academy. All students, from teenagers to concert organists, can explore the possibilities of these organs. It is one of the reasons that the Summer Academy of the International Organ Festival Haarlem is a unique experience. Don't miss it and play these organs too, book here your Summer Course.

Their goal: to participate in the International Summer Academy of the Organ Festival, which is organized around the Bavo Church in the second half of July.

In and around Haarlem
We are looking for guest addresses for those international students. Do you live in Haarlem, or slightly further afield? Are you a hospitable person by nature, do you speak English no problem and do you have a room (or perhaps more rooms) available between July 13 and 28 where you would be happy to host one or more organists from abroad? And can you serve your guest(s) a delicious breakfast every morning? Please contact us.

You will of course receive compensation for this, and you can choose two free tickets for a Festival concert of your choice.

For more information, please contact us at!

P.S. Organizers who use guest addresses are usually very happy with the personal contact. They spend most of the day at the classes; They only count on you for the overnight stay and breakfast!
