Greetings organ music enthusiasts! The programming for 2023 concludes the 18 year run of exceptional organ concerts in and around Toronto. It has been a true privilege to present some of the finest musicians from Europe, United States and Canada. Through the many years of organ concerts, ORGANIX CONCERTS showcased the talents of emerging organists who have now become quite famous in their own professional activities. ORGANIX CONCERTS has also presented highly respected professional Canadian and International musicians. It was a distinct honour to meet the best of the best and create wonderful friends in the process. Mostly, it has been a thrill to meet so many wonderful people who just loved coming to every concert, whether they were to experience a lunch time event or one of the Special Presentation Series gala affairs. If you wish to relive some of the concerts that have been performed, just go to the Selected Performance tab here on this page and you will find some of the over 300 performances produced over the years. You can now use this site as a resource for probing repertoire by clicking on Past Performances. Every ORGANIX program and performer through the years will be listed in this section.

From time to time, I will present special concerts that you might be interested in attending. One such concert is scheduled for Sunday June 9, 2024, 4:00 featuring ORGANIX alumnus Alexander Straus-Fausto in an inaugural concert of a newly installed Allen/Mansell Rudy Lucente organ at St. Barnabas Catholic Church, 10 Washburn Way, Scarborough, Ontario, M1B 1H3. This organ has been installed in a newly renovated church by famous architect Carlos Nunes and is in the Markham Road and Shepherd Avenue area. The organ boasts of three spectacular chambers including a trumpet chamade behind Baroque-style pipe facades in the style of Arp Schnitger. Well worth a visit to see this marvelous space and hear this amazing organ. The concert will be a free-will offering but in addition to that, should you wish to help in the costs of presenting this inaugural concert, your generous donation would be gratefully welcomed. You may make that donation next to Alex's Bio and Program buttons just below the video.

In the meantime, here is a video of Alexander performing at the Basilica in Guelph, a place ORGANIX has presented concerts on several occasions.
