What is the Haarlem International Summer Academy for Organists?

The Haarlem International Summer Academy for Organists was founded in 1955 and is therefore the oldest of its kind in the world! During the last 70 years the Academy grew from 4 teachers and 10 students to the largest Summerschool in the world. Now around 100-120 students from all over the world  even from China, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, South Corea, South Africa, United States of America, Chili, Syria...  travel to Haarlem each two years to attend masterclasses and study with the most distinguished organists of this time.
A very successful Young Talent Class has been part of the Academy since 2010, an unforgettable experience for the selected participants that for some was the beginning of a professional music education and even a starting career as a concert organist. 
The focal point of the Summer Academy is undoubtedly the world-famous Christian Müller organ (1738) in St. Bavo's Church.
