Lunchtime Organ Recital Series returns to the Fox Valley this summer for its 25th anniversary season!
The Lunchtime Organ Recital Series returns to the Fox Valley this summer for its 25th anniversary season. Recitals are held on Wednesday’s from 12:15-12:45 pm throughout the summer at local churches, including a very popular July 4th sing-a-long which will be held this year at the Lawrence University Memorial Chapel.
Founded in 1995 by the late Frank Rippl, these recitals are beloved by the community. Events often attract crowds of two to three hundred attendees who come to hear the wide array of pipe organs at the many beautiful houses of worship in our communities. Performers include several local organists and many others from across the country. The series is sponsored by the Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of the American Guild of Organists with many of its members performing.
The concerts are free and open to the public. A free-will offering is taken to offset costs associated with the administration of the series, as well as to fund a scholarship program for new organists.
