We invite you to join us for our Annual Organ Concert on February 25, 2018 at 4:00PM. This years concert willl future French Canadian Organist Isabelle Demers. All are welcome to attend-- tickets are $20 each and can be purchased in advance in the Church Office or by mailing a check and enclosing a self-address return envelope to the Neighborhood Church noting "Organ Concert" in the memo line.
With playing described as having “bracing virtuosity” (Chicago Classical Review) and being “fearless and extraordinary” (Amarillo-Globe News), Isabelle Demers has enraptured critics, presenters, and audience members worldwide for her spell-binding performances. A native of Québec and a graduate of the Juilliard School, Ms. Demers is Organ Professor and Head of the Organ Program at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. Her recital for the joint International Society of Organbuilders – American Institute of Organbuilders convention in 2010 so enchanted the audience that she “left the entire congress in an atmosphere of ‘Demers fever’.”
She has appeared in recital at the cathedrals of Cologne and Regensburg in Germany, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Royal Festival Hall in London, the Royal Opera House of Muscat (Oman), Melbourne Town Hall (Australia), as well as major universities and concert halls in the United States, among them Disney Hall (Los Angeles), the Kimmel Center (Philadelphia), the Wanamaker Organ (Philadelphia), Yale University, Benaroya Hall (Seattle), Spivey Hall (Georgia), and the Spreckels Pavillion (San Diego).
Ms. Demers is in continual demand by her fellow colleagues as witnessed by repeat performances for regional and national conventions of the American Guild of Organists (Minneapolis, 2008; Washington D.C., 2010; Hartford, 2013; Austin, 2013; Indianapolis, 2015; Houston, 2016), the joint convention of the Institute of Organ Builders and International Society of Organbuilders (Montréal, 2010), and the Royal Canadian College of Organists (Toronto, 2009; Kingston, Ontario, 2016).
