The Autumn Cycle, promoted by Inatel Foundation, proposes four pipe organ concerts in the municipalities of Coimbra, Arganil, Cantanhede and Miranda do Corvo.

According to the director of the Inatel Foundation in Coimbra, Bruno Paixão, this cycle aims to "enhance culture as well as generating awareness of the existing organ heritage".

"The Inatel Foundation proposes to diversify this cycle through the territory, bringing some new faces among the instrumentalists and providing the spectators access with free entrance", said the responsible, in a press release sent to Lusa.

The opening concert will take place on Saturday, in the church of Santa Casa da Misericórdia of Arganil, on the day that marks the World Day of Music.

The performance of Baroque Music by Organ and Flute, with Paulo Bernardino and Alexandre Andrade, will start at 4pm.

About an hour later, a visit to the Museum Room "Miguel Torga's office doctor Adolfo Rocha" is scheduled.

The second concert is scheduled for 8 October, at 9pm, in Santa Cruz Church, in Coimbra.

The performance will be by the organist, pianist and harpsichordist Nuno Oliveira, who this year conducted the Portuguese premiere of the Oratorio de São João Baptista by Alessandro Stradella, at Centro Cultural de Belém.

The third concert takes place on 14 October, at the Semide Monastery, in the municipality of Miranda do Corvo. The cultural offer begins at 20:00, with a guided tour to the monastery and a tasting of regional products. The concert by Swiss-born organist Carole Reis will start at 21:30.

The cycle closes on 22 October, at 21:00, with the performances of Polish soprano Patrycja Gabrel and organist Daniel Oliveira, at the Parish Church of Santo António, in Covões, municipality of Cantanhede.
