A Grand Instrument
The great organ of Washington National Cathedral was built by the Ernest M. Skinner & Son Organ Company and installed in 1938. The great organ consists of 10,647 pipes.
Join us for recitals on the Cathedral’s great organ featuring organists from around the world. Please refer to the Cathedral Calendar for holiday organ recital dates and times. There is a suggested donation of $10 per person. No reservations are required, with the exception of groups.
The great organ has been revised and enlarged over the years to accommodate the changing needs of the Cathedral: view the great organ’s specifications (PDF).
