Happy New Year!

Updated: Feb 7, 2019

I hope that this message finds you well and that you've had a good start to 2019! Here are a few of my upcoming projects in the new year. You can find out more by visiting the Calendar page.



In February, I'll be conducting One Equall Musick for their collaboration with ensemble ¡Sacabuche! Featuring works by the famous Venetian composers Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli and their contemporaries, this rich combination of voices and brass will be a treat for the ears!

The Golden Age of Venice, February 2, 2019, Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, Montreal


On March 2 for Montreal's Nuit blanche, the Music Ministry at St. James United Church will present a night of opera favourites featuring the music directors at St. James along with some of our talented friends!


Une nuit à l'opéra, March 2, 2019, St. James United Church, Montreal


Also in March, I'm looking forward to presenting a talk on Jewish organ music at Temple Emanu-El-Beth-Sholom's lunchtime lecture series. Called "The organ: a Jewish instrument?" I'm looking forward to sharing my research on the development and use of the organ in the Reform Jewish movement.


The organ: a Jewish instrument?, March 19, 2019, Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom, Montreal


(EDIT 07/02/2019: EVENT CANCELLED) I'm also looking forward to revisiting Peter Syke's fantastic transcription of The Planets by Gustav Holst for a concert at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Toronto next May. The church's mighty Casavant organ with over 7,000 pipes will bring Holst's orchestral colours to life!
