What is the Royal Canadian College of Organists?
The Royal Canadian College of Organists (RCCO) is a national organization representing Canada’s organ community, including organists, composers, organ-builders, educators, choir directors, and others who share an interest in the organ and its music. Its members share the common goal of advancing appreciation for the organ as the “King of Instruments.”
What is meant by the Halifax Centre?
The RCCO is divided into many “Centres” located across the country.
Who can join?
Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds and walks of life. Anyone of any age or background, who loves the organ is welcome and encouraged to consider joining the organization.
When and how often do you meet?
Meetings of the Halifax Centre executive take place monthly except during the summer. An Annual General Meeting is held for all members, usually on the first Monday of June each year and is traditionally accompanied by a barbecue and social time for which members are encouraged to bring spouses, partners, special friends, etc. Other than that, special events/concerts are held throughout the year.
How can I find out about organ events happening in the community?
