If you’re interested in music and would like to use your holidays in a positive way, the charitable association Notre-Dame des Neiges Organs in the Mountains provides an exceptional setting in the French Alps, the skiing resort of l’Alpe d’Huez, to deepen your knowledge of music in an uncompetitive atmosphere.

At the end of the courses, you will be able to participate in a public concert, given in the church of Notre-Dame des Neiges, a stunning modern building, illuminated by the stained glass windows of the artist Arcabas.

The mountain resort of l’Alpe d’Huez offers a wonderful setting for these courses. Whether you wish to spend your free-time doing sport, or simply walking around the area, the sunny climate allows for a maximum of outdoor activities. A system of free pass cards gives you free access to all the leisure possibilities that the resort has to offer. For further details, please visit the web site http://www.alpedhuez.com/.

Access to l’Alpe d’Huez is very easy. Only 63 km from Grenoble’s TGV station and airport, there is also a regular bus service between the two towns. Tel. : +33(0)4-76-80-31-61 - http://www.transisere.fr/.

The Notre-Dame des Neiges church organ is one of the finest examples of recent organ making. Designed by Jean Guillou and built by Detlef Kleuker, it has two keyboards of 61 notes each, 32 pedal notes, 24 speaking stops, tracker action with an electronic combination system. Its organ casework, which represents a hand reaching out towards the sky, is world famous.

Improve your technical and artistic skills with the help and back-up of an experienced teacher. Individual tutoring (in turns) is from 9 am to 1 pm. The afternoon is devoted to individual studies on the Kleuker organ of l'Alpe d'Huez, or Schwenkedel organ of Huez.

The choice of works that wish to be studied is left entirely to the trainees, whether concerning style or musical difficulty.

The second week is largely devoted to the elementary study of the organ.

The trainee organ players will give a concert, accompanied by the choir trainees.

On Saturdays and Sundays, you are warmly invited to participate in the church services and to share ideas about liturgical presentation.

Classes can be run in French, English or German.
