David Briggs is an internationally renowned organist whose performances are acclaimed for their musicality, virtuosity, and ability to excite and engage audiences of all ages. He is known for his inspiring improvisations and the rich colors of sound he brings to life when he plays. David returns to Overture Hall following his enormously successful 2013 debut recital with a program of music that includes three works he arranged: the March from The Love for Three Oranges by Sergei Prokofiev, Hungarian March in G minor by Johannes Brahms, Hector Berlioz’s Menuet des Follets (from The Damnation of Faust), as well as Sarabande from Pour le piano by Claude Debussy (arr. Cellier). In addition to a very active recital career, David Briggs serves as organist at St. James Cathedral in Toronto.
