In keeping with the tradition of our Festival, guided tours will also form part of its programme. The highlight of this year’s tours will be St Mary’s Church (or the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary) and its organ, one of the most spectacular musical instruments in Toruń. In the past, this magnificent masterpiece of organ building and an instrument inseparably associated with liturgy played an important role during family occasions and city ceremonies of Lutherans and Catholics alike.This seventeen-century instrument will be presented by Dawid Wesołowski, who will explain why it is no longer in use, translate the symbolic language of the decorative sculptures included in it, and, most interestingly, demonstrate the sound and technical features of the organ.
