Organ recitals for Afghan refugees
Grace Church in Sutton

Grace Anglican Church Sutton will present three organ recitals in support of Afghan Refugee Sponsorship. These concerts will take place on July 23rd at 5h30pm, August 20th and September 17th at 4pm. These recitals will demonstrate the amazing abilities of the new Johannus Ecclesia digital organ. It will also give an opportunity to hear performances from outstanding professional organists.

The first two recitals will be given by graduates of the McGill Schulich Organ School. They are Mária Budáčová, originally from Slovakia, and now holding a position in a Roman-Catholic Church Mission in Saint-Irénée-de-Lyon, Montréal. And Rosemarie Tougas, who is currently studying at the Musikhochschule, Lübeck, Germany. The September recital will be given by Pierre Cabana, the organist at St. Paul’s, Knowlton.

The Dutch Johannus Ecclesia digital organs are specifically designed for church use and are equipped with multiple amplifiers, speakers and a woofer, and are maintenance free and guaranteed for 20 years. The organ sounds are created by amazingly accurate reproductions of real organ pipes. They offer versatility for all abilities of players, so any organist can select appropriate settings he or she needs, whether it be accompanying hymns or a full-scale recital. Grace Church’s Ecclesia has proved to be powerful enough to fill every nook and cranny with rousing pipe organ music and its congregations are singing more lustily than ever before!

Take note of the dates and come to hear wonderful organ music in the ambience of the beautiful Grace Church and support Afghan refugees.
