International Organ Festival Haarlem 12 - 26 July 2014

In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that we have heard news of the passing on Sunday 19 October 2014 of Bernard Bartelink. We are grateful for the contribution he made over many years as a board member of the Haarlem International Organ Festival.
Bernard Bartelink (born in 1929) won the Haarlem Improvisation Competition in 1961 and was a member of four juries in the period 1969-1996. He joined the board in 1978 and served for twenty years, and as a Haarlem organist he was always closely interested in the festival. We cherish the memory of a highly talented organist, improviser and composer.
