Harry van Wijk (1971) is a versatile musician with passion. He is working as

concert organist, church musician and choir director.

He has played concerts in several countries in Europe and the USA. He likes

characteristic concert programs, with the best music from the organ

literature; but also film music with organ, synthesizer and percussion, or

music with organ and narrator.

Harry studied at the conservatorium with Kees van Houten and Theo Jellema.

He also followed lessons in Belgium with Joris Verdin and in Germany with

Wolfgang Zerer. The last years of his study he specialized in the French and

German music from 1850 – 1950. After the conservatorium he followed

lessons and masterclasses with Ludger Lohman, Leo van Doeselaar and Arno

Krijger, with music from J.S. Bach, F. Mendelssohn Bartholdy and 20. century


He won prizes with the International Organ competition in Nijmegen and with

several competitions in Germany.

A CD is published that Harry has recorded in Philadelphia (United States)

including 'Die Moldau’ by B. Smetana. He plays this on a beautiful organ of the

builder E. Skinner. These organs are specially designed for playing orchestral
