About this Event

Maria Gajraj is a passionate musician, collaborator, and educator. She strives to break stereotypes within the organ world, and brings a fresh, unique perspective to her work as she aspires to ever greater heights!

Her program will consist of the following:

Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr, BWV 663 -J.S. Bach

"La primavera" from "Le quattro stagioni" - A. Vivaldi

Andante in F - W. A Mozart

Peer Gynt Suite no. 1, Op. 46 - E. Grieg

Epilogue sur "Nun Danket" et "Ballerma" - Raymond Daveluy

Maria Gajraj is a dynamic multi-instrumentalist, specializing in piano and organ performance. She recently completed her Master’s Degree in Organ Performance and Church Music at McGill University, where she studied with Hans-Ola Ericsson. Maria graduated with Distinction in 2019 from Carleton University, where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Music, studying the organ with Jennifer Loveless. Maria has received scholarships from the Royal Canadian College of Organists, and placed first in local music competitions from 2016-2019. She received the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa Arnt Loa Scholarship twice, and received a Graduate Excellence Fellowship from McGill University. She is the most recent recipient of the Arthur and Helen Henderson Scholarship. Maria has performed in public masterclasses and played solo concerts throughout Ottawa, Montreal, and Cornwall, and most recently, live-streamed organ recitals during the 2020 COVID pandemic. Maria has had a private piano teaching studio for the past seven years. She has mentored her students as they compete in music festivals, and organizes seasonal recitals for her piano students. She has been working within churches of various denominations for the past five years, playing for choirs, soloists, and instrumentalists, and directing choirs.

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.
