There's a lot of community events going on, on Super Bowl Sunday but nothing quite as unique as an organ recital.

The Lima chapter of the American Guild of Organists held their annual Super Bowl Sunday Organ Recital at Market Street Presbyterian Church. Ten organists performed with an interlude where a pianist accompanied the audience in hymns The recital has been a tradition for a couple of decades now but in its beginnings, the Super Bowl connection was not exactly intentional.

"It started probably 25-30 years ago when we, by accident, had a recital on Super Bowl Sunday and found out that lots of people came because they didn't have anything to do while they waited for the Super Bowl to start," says Martha Hefner, Dean for the Lima chapter of the American Guild of Organists.

Next year's recital will be at Trinity United Methodist Church.
