Christian Lane
2011 Canadian International Organ Competition Winner
8pm Friday 30 January 2015
Tickets: $25 / Students and Seniors $20

Works ranging from J.S. Bach to the present, including Louis Vierne’s famous Carillon de Westminster and music by Denis Bedard, with a special emphasis on contemporary American composers.  One of the organ world’s brightest rising stars, Christian Lane earned first prize in four major American organ competitions before reaching his twenty-first birthday and performs regularly throughout the US and Europe.

“To win the competition requires musicality, coordination, dexterity, virtuosity and good programming…  The $25,000 first-prize winner, American Christian Lane, assistant university organist at Harvard, demonstrated exactly that, with a varied repertoire that made full use of the spectrum of possible sound.” – Montreal Gazette

“If Christian Lane is an example of the future of our instrument, not only will he bring new converts to it, but the panache, vitality and joy with which he plays may just show people how musical the instrument truly is capable of being!” – Organ Canada Magazine

Performance visible on a giant screen at the front of the Cathedral.
