The Grand Organ returns – Inaugural Recitals 2022

Scroll to explore

A series of inaugural recitals to celebrate the return of York Minster’s Grand Organ, following the once-in-a-century refurbishment of the instrument which took place between 2018 and 2021.

The summer recitals continue an annual tradition established at the Minster in the 1950s and celebrate a musical heritage of organ music at the heart of worship at the cathedral which dates back centuries.

The cathedral will welcome internationally renowned organists for the Thursday evening recitals on the following dates:

Full details of the organists for each date will be announced later this year, with tickets for all performances released in 2022.

The organ returned to regular use during worship in March 2021 but the inaugural recitals have been moved to summer 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
