From October 2 to 30, 2016, over 4500 spectators attended over fifteen events, a 45% increase from the 2015 Festival!

In total, the Festival, presented by the National Bank, put together 16 events in 8 different venues showcasing around forty musicians, singers and organists; three events were sold out.

Thank you to our wonderful partners: St-Joseph's Oratory, Festival des couleurs de l'orgue français, McGill University and Théâtre de la Ville.

The CIOC will now focus its attention on preparing for the triennial Competition, which will take place from October 10 to 21, 2017. The Competition will welcome the finest 16 young international organists and 9 jury members. During the 2017 Competition, the CIOC will give prizes and awards totalling close to $120 000.
