Tonight: An organ recital by rising star David Enlow at St Thomas’s Church


David Enlow, a former student of Toronto organist John Tuttle’s, performs a solo recital tonight at St Thomas’s Anglican Church on Huron St. It’s a wonderful opportunity to hear a fine musician Tuttle describes as, “among the top performers I have had the privilege to teach.”

The concert celebrates the Canadian release of Enlow’s new album, Pater Seraphicus, titled after the Latin nickname of French composer César Franck.

Besides pieces by Franck, tonight’s concert will include music by J.S. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Richard Strauss, Louis Vierne and Edward Elgar.

Enlow currently teaches at the Juilliard School and is organist and choirmaster at the Church of the Resurrection in New York City.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., at 383 Huron St. Tickets (at the door) are $20 or $15 for students and seniors.

  1. Perhaps Diane Bish transcends the boundaries of the organ world more than any other organist. Virgil Fox before her and E.Power Biggs. They each used media, i.e. television, to extend their personalities to a greater audience. So yes, I think there is such a notion as an organ star. However, outside of North America and in Russia, parts of Europe and China, organists are indeed stars. Some places treat organists as “Rock Stars”. Imagine that?
