Pacific Symphony Announces Pedals and Pipes Series


Pacific Symphony has announced Pedals & Pipes, a series that features a variety of national and international organists to perform varied repertoire at the highest level. This engaging concert trio showcases the supersonic splendor of the mighty William J. Gillespie Concert Organ, a one-of-a-kind instrument built specifically to match the pristine acoustics of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.

The 2022-23 Pedals & Pipes season, generously sponsored by Valerie and Barry Hon, is sure to be a memorable experience for all: the series opens acclaimed organist Todd Wilson with members of the Pacific Symphony in our beloved Holiday Organ Spectacular (20 December , 2022), with festive favorites and other holiday directories. In the spring, Organ Superstar Anna Logwood (April 1, 2023) will prove why she is one of England’s rising organists who is attracting huge online followings as a TikTok star. And the season closes with organ virtuoso Christopher Houlihan (June 4, 2023), who was hailed by the Los Angeles Times for his “sparkling and miraculously vital performances.”

Subscriptions for the Pedals & Pipes series start at just $35. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org.
