Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, in association with the Philadelphia Chapter of The American Guild of Organists (AGO), is proud to present the 8th Annual Organ Day, a six-hour marathon of FREE organ music performed on The Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ taking place on Saturday, June 23 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Audiences of all ages are invited to explore “Fred,” the largest mechanical pipe organ in a concert venue in the United States, through a diverse line-up of programming tailored to include something for everyone. This year’s Organ Day will include demonstrations by AGO organists, our family-friendly Grow Up Great program, silent film with organ, special performances with Opera Philadelphia, Philadelphia Brass, and more.
And don’t miss Organ Pumps, where audience members can lie on the stage of Verizon Hall and feel the powerful vibrations of the organ!
Organ programming is generously supported by the Wyncote Foundation.
