Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments

[1862 Walcker; 1947 Aeolian-Skinner at Methuen Music Hall, Methuen, MA]
1862 Walcker; 1947 Aeolian-Skinner organ at the Methuen Music Hall in Methuen, MA

Summer Fun

It’s time to take the organ out of its religious context, and enjoy it out of doors at Balboa Park in San Diego. We’ll also visit other venues where summer concerts win new friends for the King of Instruments. From the Methuen Music Hall in Massachusetts to the Mormon Tabernacle, from Balboa Park in San Diego to the Berks County Museum in Pennsylvania, we celebrate a season of adventure and discovery, a sampler of seasonal recital venues coast to coast. It’s all about having some Summer Fun.
