More About Demers

Organist Isabelle Demers has enraptured critics, presenters, and audience members around the globe for her entrancing performances. Her 2010 recital for the joint International Society of Organbuilders -- American Institute of Organbuilders convention so enchanted the audience that she "left the entire congress in an atmosphere of 'Demers fever.’” 

That same year, her national convention of the American Guild of Organists in Washington, D.C., was received with great acclaim not only by critics, who deemed it "one of the most outstanding events of the convention" (The American Organist), but also by the standing-room-only audience, which called her back to the stage five times.

Demers is in continual demand by her colleagues as witnessed by repeat performances for regional and national conventions of the American Guild of Organists (Minneapolis, 2008; Washington D.C., 2010; Hartford, 2013; Austin, 2013; Indianapolis, 2015; Houston, 2016), the joint convention of the American Institute of Organ Builders and International Society of Organbuilders (Montreal, 2010), the Royal Canadian College of Organists (Toronto, 2009; Kingston, Ontario, 2016), and the Organ Historical Society (Vermont, 2013 and Minnesota, 2017).

Her debut recording on Acis label was met with critical acclaim. A native of Quebec and a doctoral graduate of the Juilliard School, Demers is the newly appointed Associate Professor of Organ at McGill University (Montreal, Quebec). She was formerly the Joyce Bowden Chair in Organ and Head of the Organ Program at Baylor University (Waco, Texas).
