Playing at Concordia University diploma ceremony

On September 24, 2015, at 6 PM I played the organ for Concordia University at what used to be Nuns’ Chapel in Montréal, situated at 1190, rue Guy, now a students’ residence.

Concordia University was holding a commemorative commencement ceremony for Loyola College graduates, who, after Concordia University purchased the college, were now receiving Concordia University diplomas.

I was the first person to use the instrument since Concordia University acquired the space. A history of the organ can be found HERE
