Educational activities : in partnership with the organ world of Quebec and Canada, these activities are put together to bring an ever greater number of people to appreciate organ music..

Organ Takes its Place : these organ concerts are given in different municipalities in Quebec and Canadna to bring to light the precious organ heritage across the country. Read the latest review of a concert we did in Warwick, Québec in May.

The Canadian International Organ Competition's mission is to promote organ music and its rich cultural heritage by organizing a Competition every three years, concerts and educational activities around the organ.
