Organ Demonstrations

The Great Organ

Organ Demonstration

See update below. On Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:30–1 pm, a Cathedral organist gives a short talk about the Cathedral’s 10,650-pipe organ followed by a mini-recital. No reservations are required for individuals or for families, but we do require reservations for bus groups.

Please note that organ demonstrations do not take place on holidays.


Upcoming Demonstrations

Due to ongoing restoration work at the National Cathedral, we apologize we are unable to offer organ demonstrations through the month of July.
