The biggest addition to the performance chamber at Winspear Centre is the magnificent Davis Concert Organ. Launched at a sold-out gala performance on September 14, 2002, the beautiful creation in wood and metal was built by Orgues Létourneau Limitée of St. Hyacinthe, Québec. It features 96 stops, 122 ranks, and 6,551 pipes – a stunning aural as well as visual delight. Come and experience the magnificent organ and a tour of the facility.

Music is one of the singular most powerful means of communication amongst humans. It is most powerful when people make it themselves, and share it with one another, live. Pursuing this premise, and after years of strategizing, experimenting and exploring at every level of our organization, we continue to recognize our enduring purpose as an orchestra. At its simplest our mandate is to fulfill the human need to make and share music.
