ISABELLE DEMERS

Register
🎹 The "new" Steinmeyer organ celebrates 10 years in 2024, and Olavsfest marks the anniversary with a concert with the virtuoso Canadian organist Isabelle Demers!

"There is no shortage of organists who make the instrument roar; but Isabelle Demers makes the instrument sing.” (Peter Reed, Classical Source.com, England)

With organ playing described as "relaxed virtuoso" (Chicago Classical Review) and "fearless and extraordinary" (Amarillo-Globe News), Isabelle Demers has enchanted critics and audiences worldwide.

She has given concerts throughout Europe, and in Oman, Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada, including in the cathedrals of Cologne and Regensburg, the ElbPhilharmonie (Hamburg), the Royal Festival Hall, the Royal Albert Hall, St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Cathedral and Westminster Abbey (London); City Hall (Stockholm); the Royal Opera House in Muscat (Oman); The Forbidden City Concert Hall (Beijing, China); Victoria Hall (Singapore); Melbourne City Hall (Australia); Auckland City Hall (New Zealand); Disney Hall (Los Angeles), Davies Hall (San Francisco), Meyerson Symphony Center (Dallas), Kimmel Center and the Wanamaker organ at Macy's (Philadelphia) and Maison Symphonique (Montréal). She was recently a featured musician during the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

* J.S. Bach – Allein Gott in der Höh, BWV 664
