Welcome to Organix 17

ORGANIX CONCERTS is Toronto's on-going organ festival, concerts that features the thrilling sounds of the magnificent pipe organ, "The King of Instruments." Now approaching its thirteenth season and completing a legacy of 150 concerts and events, ORGANIX continues its collaboration with All Saints Kingsway in producing the Kingsway Organ Series. It is a free bi-weekly Wednesday 45 minute concert starting at 12:30 pm.

As the festival progressed through 2017 and in the fall and winter season, the major fall event included the September 22, 7:30 pm collaboration with Timothy Eaton Memorial Church, the Consulate General of the Republic of Italy through the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Toronto and the Royal Canadian College of Organists. Together we presented Italian organist and musical sensation, Mario Ciferri. This concert was a tremendous event and Maestro Ciferri performed brilliantly to an enthusiastic and significant audience. In this performance, Maestro Ciferri showcased the newly restored and expanded five-manual Casavant organ at Toronto's Timothy Eaton Memorial Church. At the same event, I received an Award of Excellence for ORGANIX CONCERTS from a national committee of the Royal Canadian College of Organists. This award is given for significant contribution to the promotion and value of the organ and its music in Canada.

On the morning of Saturday September 23, also at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church from 10:00 am – noon, Maestro Ciferri conducted an informative Masterclass with three student participants.... Manuel Piazza, Stefani Bedin and Patrick McElcheran.

Continuing this 2017 edition of ORGANIX CONCERTS through to the end of December, planning for 2018 has already begun and dates are secured to present a free lunch time concert every other Wednesday and two evening gala concerts featuring international artists. We are in for thrilling times! Please check often for an updated announcement, either here on the website or on the facebook page. Please “like” ORGANIX on facebook so that you can get the most immediate information on upcoming events.

Thank you for your continuing support and interest in live organ music. I look forward to personally welcoming you at the next ORGANIX concert.


Musically yours,
Gordon D. Mansell
Executive Producer & Artistic Director
