Pulling Out All Stops

May 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Vancouver Organists in Concert

Vancouver organists present an eclectic programme of music on the mighty three-manual Casavant Frères organ at St James’ Anglican Church. This annual by-donation event, presented in collaboration with the Vancouver Centre of the Royal Canadian College of Organists, is a wonderful opportunity to hear and meet talented local artists in concert on the mighty 1938 pipe organ at St James.

The programme will include a première performance of Denis Bédard’s Plein Jeu, Récit de cornet, Grand Jeu ( de la Suite du cinquième ton ), and lovely introspective music such as William Bolcom’s Jesus Loves Me (an arrangement of a classic hymn, full of fun surprises such as a swinging 9/8 meter, jazzy chromaticism), as well as virtuosic pieces such as Einar Traerup-Sark’s Toccata, Lefébure-Wély’s Sortie, and Louis Vierne’s Toccata.

Admission is by donation. Please confirm your attendance for planning purposes.
