About this event

Beach United presents multitalented performer and composer Rashaan Allwood, as he presents a beautiful and spiritually-moving program examining our connection to God and the divine. With music by J.S. Bach, Bert Matter, Olivier Messiaen and his own original works, this is not a concert you want to miss!

Rashaan Rori Allwood is a multitalented musician based out of Toronto, currently pursuing a PhD in Composition. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance and a Master's degree in Organ Performance. Rashaan is the recipient of the 2022 Marilyn Mason Award in Organ Composition from the American Guild of Organists, who commissioned him to compose a new piece for solo organ to be premiered in Washington in 2022.

Rashaan was also one of the ICOT call for scores winners for short Piano works by Canadian composers in 2020. Rashaan is now the director of music at St. Ansgar Lutheran Church, Toronto where he regularly premieres his own new works, and organizes performances for choir and instrumentalists. As a soloist, he has toured across Europe, and performed at St. Paul's Cathedral in London, UK, St. Nikolai-Kirche in Leipzig, Germany and St. Pierre’s Cathedral in Geneva, Switzerland.

Beach United strongly recommends the continued use of masks for everyone's safety while attending events in our main hall.

We welcome donations to help cover the cost of hosting this event and to support our ministry programs. Donations can be made in person the day of the concert, or through our website at beachunitedchurch.com
