Welcome to Changing Tides!
Please join us in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia from July 7–11, 2019 for RCCO’s Halifax Organ Festival/Festival D’Orgue D’Halifax. Come and enjoy our Maritime hospitality and reconnect with friends and colleagues.
We have a wonderful series of concerts, workshops and events planned, where we’ll examine the changing role of the organist while celebrating pipe organ traditions. We’ll premiere a new work by Halifax composer Peter Togni, and present celebrated Canadian organists in concert. Explore Nova Scotia, including stops at historic organs and a winery tour in the beautiful Annapolis Valley, a lobster dinner in Halifax and much more!
