    Listen – Try – Discuss – Perform 

    For the 5th time Stuttgart Organ Culture is presented to an international crowd of organ students and organ lovers.
    The variety of European organ styles illustrates historical cultural environments as well as the spirit of periods past and present.
    All of this can be explored and compared in an authentic way in the unique organ collection of the University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart. The specific splendour of the Suabian monasteries with their globally admired historical instruments will enlarge this horizon.
    The pedagogical impact of the Stuttgart organ department is apparent in the success of its alumni in international competitions and in their professional careers. SOA demonstrates the wide range of its artistic and pedagogical potential, broadened by the input of internationally renowned specialists.
    The daily plenary session gives young students and professional colleagues new insights and opportunities to discuss their questions. In the pedagogical setting of SOA talented young organists meet experienced masters, resulting in fruitful discussions.
