San Diego Civic Organist Dr. Carol Williams and her rescue Airedale Dietrich Buxtehude Bell, invite the public to join them at Bark In Balboa Park 7, a free, festive organ concert especially for pets and their music loving families on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park.
Beloved pets on leash are invited to enjoy an afternoon of classics, marches and animal themed organ music on the historic Spreckels Organ followed by a lively ‘pet and people’ parade across the Spreckels Organ Pavilion stage.
Bark in Balboa Park 7 is free and open to the public.
The Spreckels Organ Society has invited representatives of the San Diego Humane Society to be on hand with pets to view and adoption information. All donations collected will benefit the San Diego Humane Society.
“Pets have always held a special place in my life,” explains Williams. “I started Bark in Balboa Park seven years ago to build awareness of the Humane Society’s mission and help assure that stories starting at their facilities finish with happy endings. This year I’m pleased to be able to introduce my own rescue Airedale, Dietrich Buxtehude Bell. We are the perfect example of one of those happy endings.”
The Spreckels Organ is the largest outdoor organ in America and one of the few pet-friendly music venues in San Diego. Free concerts are presented each Sunday at 2pm as well as on Monday evenings in the summertime. For information about these concerts visit www.sosorgan.org.
