Join the Coronado Historical Association for its monthly Wine & Lecture, "John D. Spreckels Love of Music -- Why give the people a pipe organ?" presented by the Spreckels Organ Society's Executive Director, Ross Porter.

For the great 1915 Exposition in San Diego, John D. Spreckels resolved that a pipe organ, playing for audiences who would sit outdoors in the amazing Southern California climate, was a singular necessity. While organs were a regular feature at great Expositions, the outdoor seating was a novel and daring concept. What was the Sugar Prince thinking?
