About the Organ series. Established in 2010, Trinity Cathedral’s Organ Series has been offered as a time for musical reflection during the season of Lent. Held on the five Fridays following the First Sunday in Lent, each concert is limited to 25 minutes in length and features wide ranging programs from both local musicians and organists from across the United States. It is meant to provide a short period of artistic meditation to the busy downtown Phoenix community.
