Celebrating its 21st annual series of collaborative pipe organ recitals, the Tidewater Chapter of the American Guild of Organists announces the schedule for The Organ Swell.

The concert series, an event in the Virginia Arts Festival, will feature outstanding organists from the region performing with Virginia Symphony Orchestra musicians. The series provides a rare opportunity to hear a wide range of music for organ and other instruments.

Due to COVID-19, our 2021 series will be pre-recorded and presented on our YouTube channel. A link to each concert will be provided below when available.
