Associazione Organistica Del Canavese
AODC

The AODC association (Associazione Organistica Del Canavese) is a non-profit cultural reality born in 2019 and officially formalized in 2022 from the idea of a group of young organists and enthusiasts from Ivrea, a lovely town near Turin, with the aim of spreading the artistic heritage and organ culture of the Canavese area and of Piedmont in general. “Canavese” is a large geographical area in the North-west of Italy, characterized by the presence of some of the most representative historical Italian organs, such as the typical bandistic and orchestral organs built by Serassi and Bossi through the 19th century. These instruments, often enriched by percussive accessories and other sound effects, where realized in order to simulate an entire orchestra and to let even the poorest people be able to listen to the opera music that was played in the theatres, through organ transcriptions and liturgical music composed in operatic style. In addition to these instruments, there are also many interesting Italian baroque and romantic organs, which allow to afford a wide repertoire.
At the same time, AODC is also interested in collaborations with the neighboring areas and beyond, raising awareness and creating a network through initiatives, events, concerts and projects of various kinds, in the name of inclusiveness.
Concerts represent the core of the activity of the Association. Exhibitions by young and professional artists from Canavese and elsewhere are periodically offered to the public, trying to range as much as possible between different places, instruments and repertoires. Conferences, conference-concerts and conventions represent a valid alternative to traditional concerts in order to integrate the musical execution dimension with the descriptive, formative and educational one, especially in the musicological, technical and historical fields. Another interesting initiative is represented by the organ masses, which are proposed in particular occasions or periodically. Their main purpose is to make organ music known within the liturgy to the faithful communities, giving more space to the instrumental music.
In addition to the intense concert activity, the AODC association aims to discover and rediscover the fascinating organ world through the dissemination of multimedia contents on the latest generation platforms, historical research activities, such as the cataloguing of the local musical and instrumental heritage, workshops and guided tours with schools, the promotion of organ music from a didactic and liturgical point of view and much more.
An example of these alternative activities is represented by the organ trips: these are itinerant meeting opportunities for organists, enthusiasts and onlookers in the name of conviviality and music sharing, with the aim of discovering the instruments of a specific territory.
Another important goal of the Association is to involve as much as possible the younger generation and to bring young people closer to the organ as a musical instrument and as a complex machine. Also for this reason, AODC gives great importance to the social media activity through regular posts and periodic publications such as live performances.
Currently, the AODC association is joined by about 50 members, most of them involved in internal committees and working groups, and it is guided by a Board Council made up of the 8 founding members: Silvio Rossini (President), Matteo D’Errico (Vice-president), Damiano Maria Vallero (Secretary-general), Emanuele Deta (Treasurer), Domenico Salussolia (Artistic Director and Councillor), Giancarlo Coda Negozio (Councillor), Irene Giordano (Councillor) and Beatrice Maria Vallero (Councillor).
