Visitors to St. Aldegondis Church are welcomed by organ music. Listening to organ music is not only for organ lovers but for everyone. Organ music is old-fashioned? You play a complete orchestra on your own and that is fantastic. Organ music is wonderful to hear with its deep, full sounds. Organist Emmanuel Sproelants enraptures us with his organ playing. Sven Vermassen, organ expert, will also provide information about the pipe organ and its possibilities. What is it...how does it work...how is it made...how does it sound? What are, for instance, a action, organ pipe, organ case, wind system, keyboard, pedal, stop...?
