Thirty Minutes of Exceptional Organ Music
Thursdays, through July 22
Westminster Organ Summer returns for its 11th season. This year, enjoy the free 30-minute concerts either in person in Westminster’s sanctuary or via livestream on our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/WestminsterUSC. The concerts are friendly and informal, so come as you are. Masks are not required if you are fully vaccinated.
Organ Summer offers the community a unique chance to hear a delightful variety of organ music on Thursday afternoons during the Upper St. Clair Farmers’ Market in the church’s south parking lot. It’s a winning combination of great music and fresh food.
All six performers have ties to Pittsburgh and represent the Pittsburgh area’s long tradition of nurturing and celebrating outstanding organists. Each organist reveals the beauty of the magnificent Austin organ in a distinctive and memorable way. Beyond that variety, the programs feature an appealing range of sacred and secular music.
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. Checks are welcome, made out to Westminster Presbyterian Church, with Music & Arts/Organ Summer on the memo line. Contribute online using the donate button below.
