France and the organ: an extraordinary vitality
- 10,000 organs
- Five centuries of music and organbuilding
- Hundreds of “Friends of the Organ” associations with passionate members
- Two hundred organ teaching programs
- 80 organbuilders
- Hundreds of thousands of listeners around the world
However, much remains to be done in our country so our instrument finds a more prominent place in the media, in concert halls, and other non-religious venues, in order to attract a larger and younger audience. Orgue en France (Organ in France), an association founded in 2011, has as its goal the creation of a new dynamic in the days, months and years to come.
