Organ Fete 2013 - The Magic of Orchestras in the Organ

The Magic of Orchestras in the Organ St. Andrew's Anglican Church (Woodhaven) 2700 Portage Avenue Avenue In the latter half of the 19th century, Britain was the wealthiest country the world had ever seen. The British government decided to bring musical culture to the masses. They built large town halls throughout England, installed large symphonic pipe organs made possible by the industrial revolution, and presented concerts of wonderful orchestral music arranged for the organ and played by the preeminent organists of the time. So we're staging our own celebration of orchestral transcriptions, using what is probably the most versatile organ in the city, St. Andrew's Phoenix PD370. We will be featuring a bevy of RCCO organists playing music originally written for other instruments which is linked to the golden age of the organ, a time when organists truly were rock stars. You are cordially invited to hear seven organists from across the city celebrating orchestral transcriptions. Barry Anderson, Michael Cutler, Linda Fearn, Peter Fyne, Russ Greene, Erwin Kitsch and Lynne Mavins have an exciting program planned and are looking forward to performing for you. A sumptuous reception will follow. An evening filled with good music, interesting organ tidbits, great conversation and wonderful food. Tickets are $15 at the door or can be pre-booked by calling 204–888–2627. Student tickets are $5.
