Accompanied live on the Wurlitzer organ by Vancouver organist Koos van Nieuwkoop.
A scientist by day, Koos van Nieuwkoop spends his spare time playing and studying music. He studied piano with Herta Stoffels and completed his Associate Diploma (ARCT) in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music in 2008. Koos studied classical organ with Rachel Alflatt, and served as a church organist for 15 years. Away from the keyboard, he develops software that enables organists to design and perform on their own custom virtual pipe organ. Over the past 10 years, Koos has spent countless hours exploring the endless possibilities of the theatre organ and is excited to share what he has learned through the voice of Vancouver’s very own Mighty Wurlitzer!
A festival of unusual and unexpected music for pipe organ featuring performances by Giulio Tosti, Elisa Ferrari / John Brennan / Bárbara Lázara, Sandra Boss, Blake Hargreaves, loscil / Lawrence English, gamut inc, and Sarah Davachi.
Save the date! This popular event is back again, with spooky organ music and treats for kids (and the young at heart) after the concert.
Check back in October for more info.
