Welcome to the Royal Canadian College of Organists, (RCCO), Edmonton Centre!

We are an Edmonton and area group of organist performers and appreciative listeners who love organs, organ music and organists.

As part of a nation-wide community ranging from inquisitive young minds to experienced professional organists with a passion for the organ and its music we seek to enrich the lives of others with our music, skills, and knowledge by promoting the instrument, its music, composers and performers.

Founded in 1959, RCCO Edmonton Centre is one of 28 RCCO centres based in cities coast to coast and offers a network of resources as well as educational and scholarship opportunities to local organists, students and organ enthusiasts through a variety of programs, events and concerts.

Duo Majoya
West End Christian Reformed Church


Denis Bédard  – Grande Suite for Organ & Piano
John Burge – Cathedral Architecture for Organ & Piano

Join us Friday November 4 at 7:30 pm at West End Christian Reformed Church when Duo Majoya premiere organ and piano duets by Canadian composers Denis Bédard [will include the accent on the e] and John Burge.

In 2015, Edmonton’s Duo Majoya (Dr’s. Marnie Giesbrecht and Joachim Segger received the Royal Canadian College of Organists’ (RCCO) Honorary Diplomas of Fellowship for their outstanding national and international contributions in the field of music and service to the RCCO; in particular they were honoured for their commissioning of Canadian works.

In celebration of that event, long time Edmonton Centre members Arnold and Grace Rumbold commissioned an organ and piano duet from the well-loved Canadian organist/composer Denis Bédard.

The duo met Queen’s University based composer John Burge in Ottawa in 2014 when John Burge and Marnie Giesbrecht were inducted into the Royal Society of Canada. As part of the induction celebrations Duo Majoya performed Burge’s “Offbeat Waltz” for piano duet. A musical bond was formed among them and as a result John Burge honoured the duo by arranging his monumental work “Cathedral Architecture” for organ and piano.

Duo Majoya will be performing on West End Christian Reformed Church’s 1991 35 stop Letourneau pipe organ and newly furnished nine-foot Steinway grand piano.

Tickets are available at the door for $25 (adult) and $20 (students/seniors).
