L’Organo is a two-week-long series of daily free organ recitals showcasing the diversity of organs in the city, presented in conjunction with the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in early summer. These concerts, presented by artists from across the United States, regularly attract large audiences drawn to Charleston by the annual Spoleto Festival USA, an artistic festival known internationally.
