About Us

The Lebanese Pipe Organ Week is the result of a meeting between Fr. Khalil Rahme, Head of the School of Music of Notre Dame University – Louaize, and Br. Riccardo, Superintendent of the Terra Sancta Organ Festival and Delegate for Music of the Custody of the Holy Land. The collaboration agreement for the establishment and management of the Lebanese Pipe Organ Week was signed by Fr. Khalil and Br. Richard at the Observance Monastery in Bologna (Italy) on 14 November 2015.

The festival would not be possible without the cooperation of the churches’ leaders, who have made available the pipe organs. A special mention goes to the Italian organ builder Saverio Anselmi Tamburini, who is responsible for the maintenance of the organs of the festival and who brought together the two founders of the event.
