The Canadian International Organ Competition or CIOC happening this October. And with that, Saint Joseph’s Oratory FREE concerts this month in Montreal will take place.
The FREE Saint Joseph’s Oratory concerts will be held every Sunday during October at 3:30 PM.
Technically, FREE, a voluntary contribution of whatever you can offer at the entrance is greatly appreciated. So, donate what you can or want.
This CIOC organ event is a celebration that’s going on for 6 weeks around Montreal. The other venues come at a cost, but the Saint Joseph Oratory concert is free “ish”.
And, it happens to be the home of one of the WORLD’S MOST ADMIRED ORGANS.
Organists from around the world participate in the CIOC concerts to increase interest in organ music. A trip to one of the most notable basillicas in all of Canada on these Sundays in October will show you just how powerful this impressive instrument can be.
If you’re thinking this event just isn’t for you, consider that it is an instrument that has other possibilities, other than what you’ve possibly heard at mass.
