A San Diego Summer tradition since 1987, the Spreckels Organ Society is set to present the 26th Annual Summer International Organ Festival, featuring internationally celebrated organists playing free concerts each Monday evening from June 24 through August 26, 2013 under the stars at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park.
All 2013 Summer International Organ Festival concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and are free of charge.
“Everyone is welcome at the Summer International Organ Festival,” said new Spreckels Organ Society President George Hardy. “These free concerts are a gift to San Diego first envisioned by John D. Spreckels and continued today through the commitment of the City of San Diego, the Park and Recreation Department and the many dedicated volunteers of the Spreckels Organ Society.”
The historic Spreckels Organ is the largest outdoor pipe organ in America and is situated at the center of Balboa Park, one of the country’s most beautiful urban parks.
Children are invited as well as music-loving pets on leash.
Light snacks, beverages and unique gifts are available on the pavilion grounds with proceeds from donations benefiting the nonprofit Spreckels Organ Society, working to preserve, program and promote the great Spreckels Organ as a world treasure for all people.
