by Hungarian Canadian Business Association and Embassy of Hungary to Canada
Xaver Varnus

Mark Wednesday, June 1st at 7:00 pm on your calendar now for an organ recital at Notre Dame Basilica. The performer will be Hungarian/Canadian organist Xaver Varnus. This is a charity concert with proceeds going to help refugees from Ukraine. Tickets can be purchased at www.eventbrite.ca

Xaver currently lives in Brooklyn, Nova Scotia. He purchased the former Pilgrim United Church and then he bought a used organ and had it installed there!

The recital is under the patronage of Rob Oliphant, the MP for Don Valley West in Toronto and also serves as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs. The host of the recital is Dr. Maria Vass-Salazar, Hungary’s Ambassador to Canada.

Do join us for what promises to be a very enjoyable music in support of the refugees of Ukraine. See you there!
