Rostock’s Tradesmen Association grants EUR 25,000 for Restoration Project. Read more>
On 22 Feb 2019, the Advisory Board for the Organ restoration met for the first time. Subsequently, some jobs have been assigned to the members. Research in written sources from 18th century on and technical research on the instrument itself will be on the list. At the same time, expertises for restoring the colour scheme of organ, organ loft and duke’s loft are being prepared. The next meeting is scheduled for October 14.
In the frame of the Bach-Festival Rostock (9th – 19th of May) the organ was heard
as usual during Noon Prayer at 12 AM, within the Opening and the Concluding Service, within the “Historic Concert of the Bach-Fest 1901” and within the Concert of Dresdner Kreuzchor. This was the last time that people had to pay for an organ event until the instrument will be restored again.
