This season's Midday Pipes organ series at First United Methodist Church of San Diego will be both in-person in the Sanctuary and online, live-streamed and available on YouTube.

All concerts will begin at 12:15 PM and can be accessed at or at First Church YouTube Channel on the second Wednesday of the month from September through June.  We invite you to enjoy this beautiful organ music played by distinguished musicians on the 108-rank, 4-manual Blackinton & Associates pipe organ, the largest in San Diego County. The series is sponsored by the First Church Cultural Events Committee, and each performance will be approximately 45 minutes long.
