Get set in a comfy chair with Valentine's Day treats on hand and enjoy the tremendous musical talent that Toronto has to offer!

Rashaan Rori Allwood is a dynamic and multifaceted musician based out of Toronto, currently pursuing a PhD in Composition at Western University. He is the recipient of the 2022 Marilyn Mason Award in Organ Composition from the American Guild of Organists, who have since commissioned him to compose a new piece for solo organ to be premiered at the 2022 AGO convention in Seattle, Washington. Rashaan was also one of the ICOT call for scores winners for short Piano works by Canadian composers in 2020. After receiving his Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance at the University of Toronto, he completed a Master's degree in Organ Performance at McGill University. Rashaan is now the director of music at St. Ansgar Lutheran Church, Toronto where he regularly premieres his own new works, and organizes various performances for choir and instrumentalists.

Beach United Church, like many other organizations during the pandemic, has lost much of its income. Your donation will help us to continue to provide exciting online programs such as this one, giving the hard-hit performing artist industry a source of revenue, with any extra going towards maintaining our take-away meal programs for those in need. Please be generous.
