About LOIC

LOIC is based in central London over an intensive four-day period in July, using both historic and modern instruments. Following our partnership with the St Albans International Organ Festival, in some years one day of the course takes place in churches in St Albans.

The course comprises up to 12 students under the tuition of Gerard Brooks, Duncan Middleton and a guest tutor. Guest tutors have included Loïc Mallié, (Professor of Organ and improvisation at Lyon Conservatoire and San Sebastian) Sophie-Veronique Cauchefer-Choplin (Saint Sulpice, Paris), Nigel Allcoat and Pascal Reber (Strasbourg Cathedral).
