The Great Auditorium organ's history began in 1908. From that time to today, it has grown to become one of the most impressive instruments of the country. The pipes producing the sounds sing forth into excellent acoustics of the auditorium, and range from the most delicate sounds to the thrilling power of "full organ." Some pipes are made of metal and some of wood, range in size from that of a small pencil to pipes thirty-two feet tall. The smallest pipes produce sounds as high and delicate as a bird's song. The largest pipes produce very low frequencies, which can be felt as soft vibrations or heard as a thunderous roar. Come and experience this magnificent musical instrument in its wonderful space.
