Organ Recitals

There are two organ recital series at Saint Thomas Church. The first, to mark the inaugural season of the Miller-Scott Organ, Concerts at Saint Thomas will present the Grand Organ Series. 5 Saturdays throughout the year will feature some of the country’s most outstanding organists playing the new instrument. No tickets are required for these recitals. A donation, however, is requested.

Below you'll find the remaining recitals in the Grand Organ Series. You can also read about our weekly Sunday recital series.
