PRO ORGANO OTTAWA
The next concert will be on Friday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m., at Notre-Dame Cathedral-Basilica on Sussex. The organist will be Sondra Goldsmith Proctor, who is Musician in Residence at St. Lawrence College in Canton, New York, but you will recognize her, because she is also a member of the Ottawa Centre, and travels the 1½ hours to get here frequently for Centre activities. Before moving to Canton, she was based in Washington DC, where she taught music at many levels, and served as Director of Music and Arts at Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ. She has studied and performed throughout the East Coast, Europe and the Caribbean. Sondra Goldsmith Proctor’s programme on March 4th will include a couple of pieces written for her by Rachel Laurin, and a piece by Gilles Leclerc, as well as pieces by American composers Richard Wayne Dirksen and Herman Berlinski. It will also include pieces by Bach, Franck and Widor. The complete programme will be posted soon.
When you come to the concert, you can park your car without charge in the lot behind the church, if you leave a note on the windshield indicating that you are attending an event in the church.
The concert information can be found on the Pro Organo page.
