The Organ Festival of Faro will start on November 1st and will once again count on virtuous national and international interpreters to play the historical organs of the Cathedral of Faro and the Church of Carmo. As always, the concerts take place every Saturday of the month at 21 pm.

In addition to the support for the festival itself, which comes from the Municipality of Faro, from ALGAR, from the Hotel Faro and from the Algarve Tourism Region, there are, this year, two concerts directly supported by private institutions: one by Pavel Černý and one by Rui Soares, which will be sponsored by the Inatel Foundation.

On November 8, the organization promotes a concert in which the organ interacts with another musical instrument, in this case, the Oboe. Teresa Ramos is the oboist who will accompany organist Daniel Ribeiro in this show that will take place at Igreja do Carmo.

On the 15th, the event goes to the Cathedral of Faro, and it will be through the hands of Rui Soares that music will come out of the pipes of the historical organ that exists there. “This concert has the special support of the INATEL Foundation”, stresses the organization.

The head office Faro it opened its doors again a week later, to welcome «a historical journey through ancient Iberian music», whose “guide” is musician and musicologist José Carlos Araújo.

The festival closes on November 29, at Sé, with a concert by Pavel Černý, Czech organist with «numerous international performances, several prizes won and several television, radio and record recordings» in his curriculum.
