The annual Presidents' Day Organ Festival is presented by the Los Angeles chapter of the American Guild or Organists. Each year the Festival features performances on several organs in a specific neighborhood in Los Angeles. All performances and free and open to the public.
The first Presidents' Day Organ Festival in 2008 was the inspiration of Dr. Orpha Ocse and Manuel Rosales, and featured two organs in Claremont, CA, with performances by Dr. Carey Robertson and Dr. William Peterson. Since then the event has grown to include three or four organs with six to eight performers each year. Click here to see a complete history.
