WELCOME TO ORGANIX 20

ORGANIX CONCERTS is Toronto's on-going organ festival series offering concerts that feature the thrilling sounds of the magnificent pipe organ, "The King of Instruments." Now in its fifteenth year, the festival series has presented well over 210 concerts and events. In 2020, ORGANIX is presenting another 28 concerts, continuing its very successful bi-weekly noon concerts in collaboration with the Anglican Church of All Saints Kingsway. The Kingsway series of free concerts have gained a stellar reputation for attracting some of the most noted Canadian and International organists. This series also enables an opportunity for some of our finest emerging artists to perform in a professional concert series. Happily, ORGANIX artists perform to the most enthusiastic audiences of any Toronto concert series!

2020 Season will showcase lunch time performances featuring many of our previously presented artists plus first time festival performers; Patrick McElcheran (March 18), Damien Macedo (April 1) and Peter Nikiforuk (May 13). A special lunch-time concert on February 5 will have a transportation theme as organist Christopher Dawes performs rail themed music and amateur photographer and most dedicated ORGANIX CONCERTS enthusiasts, Clayton Langstaff display his photographs of trains.

The Special Presentation Concert Series will feature Rich Spotts (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) in his continuing performances of L’Orgue Mystique (Friday, May 8) at the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate in Guelph. Rich will be joined by the Basilica choir for this performance. Giulia Biagetti (Lucca, Italy) will perform at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church (Friday, June 19) and then at the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate in Guelph (Sunday, June 21). David Bendix Nielsen from Copenhagen, Denmark (Friday, September 25) will perform for us before competing in Montreal’s Canadian International Organ Competition. David Troiano (Detroit, Michigan) with trumpet virtuoso Michael Barth will perform for us at Christ Church Deer Park (Friday October 16) and again at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Mississauga (Sunday, October 18).

There is much to look forward to throughout 2020. Please check often for announcements, either here or on the facebook page. Please “like” ORGANIX CONCERTS on facebook so that you can get the most immediate information on upcoming events.

ORGANIX CONCERTS is not supported by any institution or government source. Your donations will go a great distance in ensuring the continuation of live organ music in Toronto. Thank you for your continuing support and interest in live organ music. You can also help the cause by making a request of organ music on The New Classical FM, 96.3 in Toronto, in Collingwood 102.3 or in Cobourg, 103.1. Find a piece of repertoire to request on Bill Anderson's “Juke Box” from this ORGANIX CONCERTS website by clicking on “Past Programs” for any number of interesting pieces you may find from any of the ORGANIX concerts that have been performed since 2006. Currently, the “Juke Box” is fairly inadequate when it comes to organ music. Please give Bill Anderson several pieces to choose from and with any luck, one of them will be in his “Juke Box” and it may get air time. This single act will do much to give the station an indication that there is a market out there for organ music. Better if the piece you select actually gets played. It will promote the organ as a viable musical instrument for today's audiences. It may even encourage greater media support of organ concerts.
