Westminster Organ Summer returns for its ninth season. This series of six free organ concerts coincides with the Upper St. Clair Farmers’ Market. On Thursday afternoons, nourish your spirit and your body with great music and fresh food.

Come to the cool sanctuary and enjoy 30 minutes of exciting organ music played by outstanding performers with ties to Pittsburgh. The organists, each in a distinctive way, will showcase the Austin organ’s almost boundless combinations of sound. The programs will feature an appealing variety of sacred and secular music.

These free, casual concerts are fun for all ages. The organ console will be placed in the middle of the chancel so that the audience can watch the organist’s flying feet and hands. After the concert you are welcome to take a close look at the organ. The console and the pipes are fascinating to examine, especially for children. Plan to come and invite friends for refreshing entertainment.

Organ Summer is a musical outreach to the community sponsored by the Music & Arts Series of Westminster Presbyterian Church and the generosity of the performers. All organists donate their time and talent; a freewill offering defrays their expenses.
