For the past 25 years, National City Christian Church, at Thomas Circle, has offered their “Music at Midday” noon-time recital series on Thursdays each week. The concert series returns on FRIDAYS, starting on September 11, 2009, with a new pipe-organ-only focus, a burst of renewed energy, and a fun and interactive approach which will open your eyes to the amazing world of the pipe organ. Come experience the “Magical, Musical, Mystical Machine”!
