Thirty Five years of Organ Recitals
The Second Sunday Evensong and Organ Recital Series began in 1985, and this year, St. Mark’s celebrates 35 years of welcoming musicians from all over the globe. This year, due to COVID, recitalists will either offer a live-streamed recital from the Flentrop Organ, one of the most notable instruments in the Bay Area or offer a recital either live or via video from a different venue.
Evensong will continue to be offered at 3:00 p.m. via ZOOM. The organ recital will begin at 4:00 p.m. and will last about 45 minutes. Following the concert, the recitalist will join the zoom meeting for the reception which will be moderated by the Director of Music.
These concerts are free and supported by donations. Your support is deeply appreciated.
Contributions are welcome to help support the series at one of the following levels of support: $1-74 Supporter / $75-124 Friend / $125-249 Sponsor / $250-499 Patron / $500 – $999 Sustainer / $1000+ Benefactor.
