The Christian Schlag International Organ Festival is the largest organ festival in the Świdnica region. It's 4th edition will take place on June 2 – July 12, 2019, including 11 concerts in three different cities: Świdnica, Świebodzice and Wałbrzych.
In addition to chamber concerts and organ recitals, there will be meetings with musicians in the series "Musical Foyer" and two historical walks devoted to the Schlag family. These additional events are organised due to the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Schlag & Söhne company. All concerts will be performed in churches equipped with the organs of this company to show the stylistic diversity of the instruments built by the former Świdnik manufactory. The programme will include classical and sacred music of various eras with emphasis on the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century music. All the performances will be projected on the special screen so that the audience will be able to see the details of ogranists' work.
Polish contemporary and jazz music for trumpet and symphonic organ, composed especially for the Festival by Piotr Damasiewicz and Maciej Batora, will be performed by the authors on June 21, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the Church of Peace in Świdnica.
