This season's Midday Pipes organ series at First United Methodist Church of San Diego will be live-streamed and available on YouTube, due to Covid-19 restrictions imposed on in-person concert gatherings.

All concerts will begin at 12:15 PM and can be accessed at First Church YouTube Channel on the second Wednesday of the month from September through June. (Note the Thursday, November 12 concert date due to Veterans Day.)  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. Each performance will be approximately 45 minutes long. 


Second Wednesday of the month
12:15 - 1 PM
watch live here

Each month you’ll have a chance to listen to a different organist play a 45-minute free organ concert.
