The concert is free of charge, thanks to the Friends of Music with a reception to follow.



One of the three titular organists at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, France, Vincent Dubois is one of the finest concert organists in the world today.

A graduate of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris where he earned First Prizes in Organ (Olivier Latry’s organ class), Harmony, Counterpoint, Fugue and 20th-century composition; Dubois took the world’s stage in 2002 by winning two major organ competitions: the Recital Gold Medal at the Calgary International Organ Competition, and the Grand Prize at the International Competition of Toulouse, France. 

More recently, in January 2016 after a comprehensive audition and competition for the available post, Mr. Dubois was appointed the newest of three titular organists of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, where he continues to serve along with the two other titular organists, Olivier Latry and Philippe Lefebvre.  Prior to his appointment at Notre-Dame in Paris Mr. Dubois served as titular organist at Soissons Cathedral (2001-2014), and Saint-Brieuc Cathedral (1996-2001).

Mr. Dubois has performed in major concert venues throughout Europe, North America, Asia and the Pacific, including for numerous international music festivals.  He has also appeared as guest soloist with many orchestras and ensembles, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Dallas Symphony, the Hong-Kong Philharmonic, the Orchestre Philharmonique of Radio France, the Orchestre National de France, the Orquesta Filharmonica del Gran Canaria, the Orchestre de Picardie, the Orchestre National de Lorraine, the Orchestre de Picardie, and the Orchestre de Bretagne.  In 2017 he was a featured performer at the American Guild of Organists pedagogy conference held at the University of Kansas, and in 2018 he was a featured performer at The American Guild of Organists national convention in Kansas City, MO.

            Mr. Dubois is featured in solo recital on several commercial recordings, including a CD of the organ music of Franz Liszt on the Vox Coelistis label; a CD recorded at St. Sulpice in Paris on the JAV label; and a CD recorded at St. Etienne de Caen featuring the complete Symphonie No. 3 of Louis Vierne and the Op. 7 Preludes and Fugues of Marcel Dupré on Radio France’s Tempéraments label.  His performances have also been broadcast over Radio France, the O.R.F. Vienna, CBC Radio Canada, Australian Radio and American Public Media’s Pipedreams. 

           In addition to his extensive performing activities, Mr. Dubois holds the distinguished post of Director General of the Strasbourg National and Superior Conservatory of Music in France, and he also teaches organ at the Freiburg Musikhochschule in Germany.  He has taught organ master classes at such prestigious institutions as Yale University, The Eastman School of Music, TheCurtis Institute of Music, Oberlin College, Baylor University, St. Paul University, Emory University, and the University of Michigan, where he served as Continuing Guest Artist for a two-year period (2014-2016).
