Information on Master Classes and Application

The European Organ Academy Leipzig offers training and further education for organists. While active participation in the master classes is primarily intended for students and graduates (church music, artistic organ playing), passive participation in the master classes is open to all interested parties. The lectures and concerts are also aimed at the general public.  



From the eight different master classes during the Academy a participant can select a single class or several master classes. The master classes DO NOT take place in parallel. 

 The date of receipt of the registration decides on admission to active participation (exception: workshop with J. Lang).

The number of active participants per class is limited to 12 (workshop Lang: 5).  There is no limitation for passive participants in the master classes. 

Working languages are German and English.


FEES (without workshop*)

Active participation: 140.00 EUR per class
Passive participation: 90.00 EUR per class

    The day ticket entitles the holder to attend all events of the respective day, i.e. courses (passive), lecture and concert.
