Welcome to the Casavant Freres website
Founded in 1879, Casavant Frères is one of the best known and most respected pipe organ builders in the world.
With the celebratory inauguration of our Opus 3900, the Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique of the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, many people expressed their appreciation through communications and congratulation messages.
