All concerts are held on Sunday afternoons in the Union Sunday School, a state of Iowa Historic site in Clermont. The church was built in 1863 by local Presbyterians. The Union Sunday School congregation was established in 1857 in a private home, then within a decade moved into the Presbyterian Church. The Kimball Pipe Organ (world’s largest extant Kimball pneumatic tubular pipe organ) was donated to this site by former Governor William Larrabee in 1896. The State Historical Society of Iowa and the Clermont Historical Society co-sponsor the concert series.
The concert committee is enthusiastic about each concert, including recreations of some of the most important people, events, and organists in the history of northeast Iowa and the Union Sunday School.
All concerts, which are free, commence at 2:30pm. A free tea at the Clermont Opera House, only one block away, follows each concert where audience members can visit with the musicians.
