Australian and New Zealand College of Organists

ANZCO 10th Anniversary Gala NextGen Celebration

The Australian and New Zealand College of Organists'
ANZCO 10th Anniversary Gala NextGen Celebration
 (MP4 Film)

The next generation of Australian organists celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand College of Organists

Featuring performances on three of Australia's finest musical instruments:

• The 1964 Fincham & Sons Grand Organ in St Patrick's Cathedral, Melbourne
• The 2000 Rieger Organ in The Scots' Church, Melbourne
• The 1890 Lewis Grand Organ in St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne

ALL proceeds from the sale of this film are donated to ANZCO and will help build the future for the Pipe Organ in Australasia and support the work of the College of Organists in:

• promoting the teaching and learning of the organ
• using pipe organs as cultural assets for all
• building a sustainable community of organists

Australia and New Zealand share an impressive collection of over 2,500 individually crafted pipe organs worth well over a billion dollars in purely monetary terms and priceless in terms of replacement value!

The Australian and New Zealand College of Organists (ANZCO) is building a sustainable community of organists so that this invaluable musical inheritance, left to us in trust by generations of our musical forebears, is improved for future generations.

As plans for a major 10th Anniversary public celebration had to be cancelled, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ANZCO Council of Management decided to celebrate the next generation of Australian organists in a COVID-safe 10th Anniversary Gala NextGen Celebration Film.

Sit back, relax and enjoy these splendid performances by the exciting next generation of organists and join us in a celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand College of Organists.
