Event Series Event Series: Organ by Night

Organ by Night

May 19 @ 10:00 pm - 10:30 pm

THE THIRD SUNDAY OR EACH MONTH, ~10 P.M., (following Compline)

The return of in-person Compline services also marks the return of another favorite late-night musical event: post-Compline organ music! These informal mini-concerts have introduced generations of Seattleites to the power and beauty of a real pipe organ. All are welcome to listen in the nave, or join the organist in the loft to see what playing an instrument of this size is really like. (The radio program The Organ Loft, which airs on KING-FM immediately following Compline each week, was inspired by this tradition.)

Now presented under the auspices of the Saint Mark’s Music Series these recitals were relaunched as Organ by Night and are offered once a month, on the third Sunday of each month. Attendees may listed from the nave or join the organist in the loft. A Q&A with the organist follows the performance.

2024 Organ by Night organists:

    • JANUARY 21, 2024: Alan Lynch
    • FEBRUARY 18, 2024: Susanna Valleau
NOTE: The decision to include these informal presentations on the Compline video livestream is left to the discretion of the organist. Some prefer not to, for a variety or reasons. The choice to livestream Organ by Night or not will typically not be announced in advance.
