This singular organ containsan impressive 4,345 pipes, 55 stops, and 74 ranks.  

 

Theseries is under the direction of Dr. Gail Archer, the esteemed director of themusic programs at Barnard College, Columbia University, and the conductor ofthe Barnard-Columbia Chorus. The first concert of each month willspotlight organists from around the globe—talented individuals who have yet tobe widely exposed to American audiences.  The latter concert ofeach month will feature students from the many acclaimed area universities—theundiscovered next generation of emerging organ and musical talents.
