The Great Spreckels Organ
The great outdoor Spreckels Organ and Pavilion in the heart of Balboa Park was a gift to the City of San Diego in 1915 from John D. and Adolph B. Spreckels, sons of the sugar millionaire Claus Sprecke
Housed in an ornate vaulted structure with highly embellished gables, the Organ Pavilion shines brightly with special free performances and concerts every Sunday at 2!
For over ninety years, countless San Diegans have enjoyed free concerts with world-class music. The City of San Diego Park and Recreation Department in partnership with the Spreckels Organ Society present the organ concerts.
Since 1917, San Diego Civic organist Dr. Carol Williams , the first woman to be appointed Civic Organist in the US, and other international guest artists perform free Sunday concerts year-round at 2:00-3:00 p.m.
