Held in honour of the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Ostrava-Opava diocese, under the auspices of Bishop Mons. F. V. Lobkowicze, O.Praem.

  • Jan Zach – Sinfonia in La

This year, it will be the fourth time that the journey to the Silesian organ takes place. Around the imaginary fixed point, which is traditionally the St. Nicholas Church in Ludgeřovice with its beautiful and fully functional Rieger organ from 1930, we can find a number of remarkable instruments in the Ostrava-Opava diocese, which are gradually being reconstructed. These include the organ in the church of St. Bartholomew in Kravaře and a small baroque instrument in the St. Wenceslas Church in Ostrava.
