The Kingston Centre of the Royal Canadian College of Organists serves church musicians, organists, and pipe organ enthusiasts located in southeastern Ontario, including Kingston, Trenton, Picton, Wellington, Belleville, Gananoque, Brockville, Prescott, Perth, and areas in between.
The Kingston Centre is one of the College’s twenty-eight Centres which may be found across Canada. A map with the locations of the Centres is available on the national website. Our Centre hosted the annual RCCO convention and organ festival in 1986 and 2016. Images of organs in our Centre’s area are presented on the Gallery page.
Our Centre’s Values: Community, Education, Inspiration
When we think about why we are drawn to be members of the RCCO’s Kingston Centre, three values come to mind: Community, Education, and Inspiration. These three qualities are inscribed on the masthead of our Newsletter, from 2018 on. They represent us and guide our conversations with prospective members. Please visit our Membership page for a full discussion of these values. We hope you will join us!
About Our Website
This website, rcco-kingston.ca, incorporates much of the content of our Centre’s previous website, rcco-kingston.org, which was designed and written by Executive member Charles Walker and maintained by him for over fifteen years. The current website was edited and written by Executive member Jennifer Roche-Brown and developed with her by Hung Lam, a Kingston writer and blogger, using WordPress. Centre co-President Michael Capon contributed some writing and ideas for this page and the Membership page.
