The Westminster Organ Concert Series began 35 years ago, shortly after the installation of Westminster’s new organ in 1980. Inspired by organs built in northern Germany in the 17th century, the all-mechanical organ was built by Taylor & Boody Organbuilders of Staunton, Virginia and is still a unique instrument in the Charlottesville area. The concert series has presented organists and ensembles from all over the United States and Europe.
