Recognized as one of America’s leading performers on early keyboard instruments, Gwendolyn Toth performs with equal ease on the harpsichord, lautenwerk, organ, fortepiano, and clavichord. Her interpretations have been acclaimed for their spirit and intelligence, and her technique is founded on historical performance principles of fingering, articulation, and phrasing. As a soloist on historical organs, Ms. Toth has performed throughout Europe, including the 1434 organ in Sion, the 1509 organ in Trevi, the 1531 organ in Krewerd, the 1649 organ in Zeerijp, the 1696 Arp Schnitger organ in Noordbroek, and the 1714 organ in St. Michael’s Church, Vienna among many others.

Her other engagements in the UK this month include a concert on the recently restored ca. 1795 William Allen chamber organ at St Peter’s Church in Pilning, Gloucestershire, and a recital on the 1705 Renatus Harris organ at St. Botolph with Aldgate Church in London, which is thought to be the oldest church organ in use in England.
Her most recent two CDs were released in 2016: Renaissance music on the 16th century organ in Oosthuizen, and Renaissance and early baroque music on the meantone organ in Midwolde and the Arp Schnitger in Eenum.

Ms. Toth is also a respected conductor and music director of historical performance ensembles and orchestras. She is the director and founder of New York City’s virtuoso period instrument ensemble, ARTEK. In addition, she is Orchestra Director at Manhattan College and music director of Immanuel Lutheran Church in New York City.

St Caron's Church the parish church for Tregaron. It is is a Grade II listed building situated in an elevated position in the centre of Tregaron, and is thought to possibly be located on the site of a bronze age barrow. It stands within a roughly circular churchyard, and has been a parish church since the medieval period. It is constructed of local rubble stone and consists of a five-bayed nave and chancel, a two-story vestry/boilerhouse (south of chancel) and a three-story west tower. Its heptagonal font, with lobate angles, is twelfth century in date. The tower dates from around 1500 and has medieval openings. The church was rebuilt around 1826 in the non-conformist tradition but on it's medieval foundations. Its main entrance is thought to have been at the west end of the nave's south wall. The church was restored in 1877 and has regular services every week.
