Organ Recital Series

Three Decades of Musical Excellence

The Second Sunday Evensong and Organ Recital Series began in 1985, and this year St. Mark’s celebrates 32 years of welcoming musicians from all over the globe to play on our Flentrop organ, one of the most notable instruments in the San Francisco Bay Area.

On the second Sunday of each month, St. Mark’s offers an evening service, usually with music sung by the Schola Cantorum, and occasionally with the full adult choir. The service begins at 5:30 p.m. and typically ends at about 6:05 p.m., at which time the organ recital begins. A festive reception follows the recital.
