With playing described as having “bracing virtuosity” (Chicago Classical Review), Isabelle Demers has enraptured listeners around the globe for her spell-binding performances. A native of Quebec and a graduate of the Juilliard School, Ms. Demers is Organ Professor and Head of the Organ Program at Baylor University in Texas. She is in continual demand with numerous invitations to perform at conventions by the American Guild of organists and the Royal Canadian College of Organists. Her critically acclaimed recordings on the Acis and the ProOrgano labels have been heralded as “expressive … profound and searching” (RSCM’s Church Music Quarterly) and they, along with her live performances, have been featured on American Public Media’s PipeDreams and BBC Radio 3.

Ms. Demer’s virtuosic program will include original works and transcriptions that will appeal to all ages and interests while showcasing the kaleidoscopic colours of the Davis Concert Organ.
