Spreckels Organ Society

Programming free public concerts in Balboa Park

The Spreckels Organ Society programs and promotes the great Spreckels outdoor organ in Balboa Park, where concerts are offered to the public free of charge every Sunday at 2:00 PM in cooperation with the City of San Diego and Civic Organist Raúl Prieto Ramírez. The Society also produces a Monday evening concert series during the summer, highlighted by visiting artists and a silent movie night accompanied live on the organ. The organ was a gift to "the people of San Diego and the world" from brothers John and Adolph Spreckels at the start of the 1915 Panama-California Exposition, and is still playing 100+ years later!

The Spreckels Organ is the largest outdoor musical instrument in the world with 5,019 pipes comprising 80 ranks.
