Une Présentation du Collège Royal Canadien des Organistes.

We are planning live, in person concerts this season. We are not selling season tickets because of the uncertainty of the pandemic. Single tickets will be available at the door.

Individual Tickets at the door / Billets individuels à la porte : $25 Regular/régulier, $20 Seniors/âge d'or, $15 Students/étudiant

Please join us for 4 superb organ recitals on 4 different organs. We have a video camera and projection screen set up so that the audience can see the performers when the console is hidden. You can watch our recitalists play at all our concerts!

Pro Organo relies heavily on donations to pay for the artists and venues. Please consider donating to this wonderful organ series.

Pro Organo gratefully acknowledges the generous support of our donors.

For the Love of Organ Music!

Do you love organ music? You don't have to be a regular church-goer to love the grand music of the "King of Instruments!" Do you rejoice in the sound of the organ, which can change - in a moment! - from the quietest possible pianissimo to the loudest fortissimo of any acoustic instrument? Are you moved by hearing the great organ music of the world, composed over hundreds of years and still being written today?

Do you want the Royal Canadian College of Organists, Ottawa Centre, to be able to continue to bring concert organists of national and international acclaim to Ottawa? The Pro Organo Recital Series has for over thirty years presented four different concert organists on four different organs each season to Ottawa audiences.

For many years, the City of Ottawa supported this activity by an Arts Grant, but this grant has been discontinued, and the Pro Organo Recital Series now needs substantial financial help in order to survive. Will you help us?
