Four concerts featuring masterworks for organ, oboe, and choirs. Performers include the Quebec City Cathedral-Basilica organist Marc D’Anjou, VSO Principal Oboist Roger Cole, Vancouver organist Edward Norman, Holy Rosary Cathedral organist and composer Denis Bédard, and the Cathedral choirs.
Historic Holy Rosary Cathedral’s magnificent symphonic organ was built in 1900 by the Karn-Warren company and restored in 2000 by Casavant Frères. It has three manuals, 51 ranks and 2899 pipes, and is one of the most beautiful organs on the West Coast.
All performances except those with choirs will be visible on a giant screen at the front of the Cathedral.
