It was Mr. Spreckles, who donated the world's largest outdoor pipe organ and the Organ Pavillion, built in Italian Renaissance architectural style in beautiful Balboa Park, to San Diego, California.
Mr. Spreckles, did so with the one requirement: Every Sunday free concerts were to be performed with this unique organ containing over 4,000 pipes housed within an ornate vaulted structure. These free concerts have been going on since 1917. Even if you are not an organ fan, stop by to see and hear this huge outdoor pipe organ. If you are an organ fan you will be in heaven. The free Sunday afternoon concerts are always entertaining and I just love the summer concert series. The venue is also used for twilight concerts in the summer. We are so fortunate to have this gem in the middle of Balboa Park.
Bring a picnic basket, a bottle of wine ... What a great way to enjoy our beautiful San Diego summer nights!
