The 2024 Canadian International Organ Competition
The 6th edition of the Canadian International Organ Competition is quickly approaching, taking place from October 17th to 27th, 2024. Next year, the CIOC will welcome competitors from across the globe to Montreal as they compete on some of Canada’s finest organs for the chance to win prizes totalling more than $100,000 CAD. The competitors will be judged by a jury composed of some of the most eminent, internationally-renowned figures in the music scene.
Coinciding with the 2024 competition is the annual Grand Organ Festival, a month-long celebration of music brimming with exceptional programming that presents the organ like you’ve never heard it before with a collection of events for all ages and interests. This fall, audiences will have the special opportunity to discover world-renowned organists, both local and international, whose talents will shine a spotlight on the city’s rich musical heritage.
