A TABLE calendar documenting 30 historical organs in Slovakia will be introduced at the music-recital programme, The Praise of Organ, held at the Small Evangelical Church on Panenská Street on October 20. The event is part of the Johann Sebastian Bach - Slovakia 2005 festival organised by the AP Projekt Agency on the occasion of the maestro's 320th birthday.

Four musicians will "praise" the organ throughout the music of several composers, including Johann Sebastian Bach, starting at 17:00. Half an hour before the sale of the calendar will begin.

The project has mapped important works made by organ makers up to 1914. The Music Centre provided the material, and the research was organised by the Culture Ministry. Admission to the event is free.
