Andorra is a country with a consolidated music culture. During the whole year it is a scene of prestigious and recognized concerts and festivals, which offer not only to the citizens but also to all the visitors of the country a vast lineup of musical proposals.

From the "Associació Amics dels Orgues de les Valls d'Andorra" we want to encourage the musical divulgement offering to the society to listen, to become acquainted, to appreciate and enjoy organ music, a genre of long tradition but unfortunately little-known.

The "Associació Amics dels Orgues de les Valls d'Andorra" was established in 1999 is a corporation dedicated to the promotion of the organ culture and has the support of l'Arxiprestat d'Andorra and the Fundació Crèdit Andorrà. Both institutions have always proven interest and dedication to divulge this art and culture in generally. 

The foundation is devoted to popularize this musical universe and the works and composers who have given personality to this instrument, up to most avant-gardistic tendencies, thus transforming the organ and his music in one of the ambassadors of the Andorran culture.

In this spirit the "Associació Amics dels Orgues de les Valls d'Andorra" organises every year the "Festival internacional d'orgue" under the artistic direction of the organist Ignacio Ribas Taléns. This event deals with a series of concerts which take place in different churches. Actually they turned into a reference of musical activities in Andorra.

The generous answer received from the public fills us with satisfaction and pushes us to new challenges. Thus the "Associació Amics dels Orgues de les Valls d'Andorra" has assumed a new initiative: "L'Aula d'orgue", an educational activity created to introduce children and youngsters to the world of this instrument following a structured studies programme. 

With this web page, opened to the world, we want to offer a dynamic space for information and want to give an impulse more to the organ music and the musical culture of our country.
