Canon John Bruce Memorial Concerts
The Reverend Canon John O. Bruce was a priest of the Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac who was enamored with the beautiful sound of the Abbey organ. Because of his friendship with the Norbertine Fathers and love of music, he established a fund for the renovation and upkeep of the organ console as well as for the presentation of organ concerts. Through Canon John’s generosity, the concerts are free and open to the public so that all may share in the beauty of the Abbey and the organ music within its walls.
All concerts are at 2:00 pm and are a free will offering.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Abbey building and the Casavant organ,
an additional concert has been added to the series.
