BIOF introduces both well-known organ players and solo concerts in addition to crossover performances with untraditional concerts and contemporary music. The festival’s pride and joy is the youth course organised for those aged 13 and up. “Playing the organ is a lonesome hobby, so this a much anticipated and popular gathering,” says Gro Bergrabb, a member of the programme committee. A much-anticipated programme feature in 2017 is the attendance of the worldrenowned Olivier Latry from the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. Latry is giving a lecture as well as a solo recital.
