st-george-oshawaSt. George’s Memorial Church, Oshawa

Downtown St. George’s Memorial Church in the neighbouring city of Oshawa dates from 1924, although the origins of its congregation may be traced back to the 1840s. St. George’s has hosted the annual organ recital and biennial Osborne organ competition final round since both began in the 1970s. Its three-manual Casavant Frères pipe organ is one of the finest in the area, and its unusual 16-bell carillon is another point of musical interest.
