Welcome to

Where loud is good, fast is better, but loud and fast are best!

"Royal Canadian College of Organists national president Nicholas Fairbank points to Vancouver organist Michael Dirk, who... performed a sold-out tribute to iconic organ showman Virgil Fox at Music Fest Vancouver." - MacLean's Magazine
"Organist and choirmaster Michael Dirk is both an exceptional musician and a somewhat obsessive student of keyboard chronology—a winning combination, as far as I’m concerned. Mixing virtuosity with humour, his fancy footwork on Wilhelm Middelschulte’s pedals-only extravaganza Perpetuum Mobile was... mindblowing, and when he added his hands to the mix for Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Gigue” Fugue in G Major he proved that Holy Trinity’s 100-year-old Casavant Frères organ is truly a civic treasure." - The Georgia Strait
