The annual (not-to-be-missed) Halloween Organ Recital will return for the 14th year, however for 2019 this great concert will take place at St. John’s, Shaughnessy (SJS), 1490 Nanton Avenue and not at it’s usual location at St. Andrew’s – Wesley United Church at Burrard and Nelson in downtown Vancouver. St. Andrew’s - Wesley is undergoing substantial renovations and is not available this year.
That is not a problem because SJS has recently completed an ambitious renovation and upgrade of their 4 manual Hallman organ.
The Hallman was installed at SJS in 1968 and this upgrade 51 years later under the direction of Organist and Director of Music, Michael Dirk with the enthusiastic support of the rector, the Reverend John Stephens and the generosity and support of the parish has been a great success. The primary organ technician responsible for the work is Steve Miller, who is based out of Calgary.
