Metropolitan United’s pipe organ is a large part of why our church is known for excellence in music. Built by Casavant Frères of Quebec in 1930, the organ has a tonal palette that places it among the finest recital instruments in the country.
It is the largest pipe organ in Canada and one of the largest church organs in the world, with 8,333 pipes and 500 miles of wire.
Our organ is more than a showpiece and historical treasure; it is played every day by Metropolitan United’s visiting organists and by music students from the University of Toronto. The organ’s many moods and sounds can be heard during our weekly Sunday service, as well as during some our Thursday Noon at Met concert series.
