Christ Church Cathedral’s winter lunchtime recital series presents Victoria organist Robert Dukarm this Friday (Feb. 13).

A native of Victoria, Dukarm is organist at St. John the Evangelist Church. He continues his organ studies under Christ Church Cathedral`s music director and organist Michael Gormley.

Dukarm’s most recent performance at Christ Church Cathedral`s organ was in CapriCCio’s 2014 Remembrance Day performance of Fauré`s Requiem.

Multi-talented, Robert Dukarm is a classically trained violinist, who also plays jazz on the violin as part of a “hot jazz” group and is the rehearsal pianist of the Newcombe Singers.

The lunchtime recitals feature accomplished performers from the Island and Lower Mainland.

Soprano Nancy Washeim and Jane Edler-Davis will present a song recital Speake, Music! Melodies for the Cradle on Feb. 27.

All performances begin at 12:15 p.m. Admission is by donation.
