More Info

The Indiana Memorial Union's Alumni Hall is home to one of the finest concert organs in academia, the Webb-Ehrlich Great Organ of Alumni Hall, C.B. Fisk, Opus 91.  Its beauty as an instrument comes from the informed historical research that the master organ builders at Fisk drew from the great building traditions found in France during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Faculty, students and guests are invited to play this wonderful instrument, filling Alumni Hall with beautiful and timeless music.  Unfortunately, audience members are unable to see the musician play due to the elevated position of the organ and the lack of audio/visual equipment in Alumni Hall.

Your support will enable the IMU to completely change the listening experience for the audiences in Alumni Hall.  The thrilling experience of hearing and seeing the musician perform will enhance the educational value of this magnificent instrument.

Every gift counts! Please consider making a gift to bring sound and sight to the Webb-Ehrlich Great Organ of Alumni Hall, C.B. Fisk, Opus 91.
