The Church of the Redeemer, 222 S.

Held each Wednesday throughout the season of Advent, the 30-minute recitals begin shortly after noon at12:10 and end promptly at 12:40 p.m.
Guest organists and musicians perform on Redeemer's massive 50-stop Nichols & Simpson pipe organ, providing a brief but welcome weekday respite during the hectic holiday season.
