The Spreckels Organ Society will turn to the web to provide its free organ concerts, beginning this weekend.

Organizers warned that they offer “wholehearted support” of the state stay-at-home order due to the coronavirus, and asked fans to view the show online only at 2 p.m. Sunday.

They stressed that “there will be no live performance on Sunday at 2 p.m., so please do not come to the Organ Pavilion.”

Instead, in cooperation with the San Diego Parks and Recreation Department, Civic Organist Raúl Prieto Ramírez will pre-record the concert on a weekday. The Spreckels Organ Society will post it for viewing each following Sunday afternoon.

The free concerts have long been a popular Balboa Park attraction.

Organizers said they “know that we are contributing to the good health of all by providing – online – a weekly dose of inspiration and hope through the power of high-quality music.”
