Organ Concert - Saint Eustache Church

©Paris College of Art

The Saint Eustache church in the heart of Les Halles is one of the most visited churches in Paris. It is known for its unusually large dimensions, which make it seem more like a cathedral than a church, and the wealth of art works it houses.

Built in 1532 and subsequently restored in 1840: the façade is Gothic, while the interior is in the Renaissance and classical styles. The organ of Saint-Eustache is the biggest pipe organ in France.

In keeping with its longstanding tradition of classical music, the church hosts performances all year round by symphony orchestras and choral ensembles such as Chœurs de Radio France and the Orchestre National de France; its concerts feature on the programme of prestigious festivals like the Festival d’Automne à Parisand Paris Quartier d’Été.

On Sunday February 21, the student life office has organized an outing to listen to the organ concert that will feature works by: Grigny, Bach, Guilmant, and Duruflé.
