As part of the 3rd Madeira Organ Festival, the Regional Secretariat for Culture, Tourism and Transport, through the Regional Office of Culture (DRAC), is organizing a visit to two historical organs, the organ of the Capela do Recolhimento do Bom Jesus, built in Portugal in 1781 by Leadro José Cunha, and to the organ of the Church of São Pedro, acquired in England in the 19th century.

 

With this initiative, the DRAC aims to make better known the diversity and quality of the organs of the Region, their particularities and their musicological characteristics.  The tours will take place on 20 and 27 October, both Saturdays, at 10.30, led by the master organist Dinarte Machado, responsible for the restoration of the organs, and by the organist João Vaz.

 

The guided tours are free, but it is necessary to reserve a place beforehand, by 18 October, either by e-mailing patrimonio.drac.srt@gov-madeira.pt or telephoning 291 211 830. For further information, please consult the Facebook page “Património Cultural da Madeira” or the website “Madeira Cultura”.
