Isabelle Demers, recognized as one of North America’s most virtuoso organists, will perform in concert 7:30 p.m. April 24 at Pinnacle Presbyterian Church, 25150 N. Pima Road, Scottsdale.

Ms. Demers, professor and head of the organ program at Baylor University in Texas, maintains a busy international concert schedule. Recent engagements included the cathedrals of Cologne and Regensburg in Germany, St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, the Royal Opera House of Muscat (Oman), as well as major universities and concert halls across the United States.

“There is nothing better than the organ for sound. It’s like playing a full symphony orchestra and you’re the only one making all the music,” said Ms. Demers speaking with Sean Martinfield of Examiner.com before her highly anticipated March performance at San Francisco Symphony’s Davies Hall.

“I hope that people who come to my concerts will be amazed by the fact that the organ has so much potential and possibility,” said Ms. Demers.

On April 24, Ms. Demers will perform on the Richards, Fowkes & Co. pipe organ at Pinnacle Presbyterian Church in north Scottsdale.

The concert is co-sponsored by the Central Arizona Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and Pinnacle Concert Series. Tickets are $35 for premium seating and $20 for general admission. Student tickets are free.

Information and tickets are available online at www.pinnacleconcerts.com or at the door. Call 480-585-9448 for more details.
