SOME OF THE 7,000 ORGAN PIPES
Renovation Program on Hill
6rgan Nearing Completion
By DAVID KAPLAN
After nine months of repair
work, the $40,000 renovation pro-
gram on Hill Auditorium's organ
is nearing completion.
Almost all of the organ's 7,000
pipes were taken out, cleaned and
revoiced. The exceptions were the
32-feet high wooden base pipes.
Sme pipes were cleaned here.
Others were sent to the Aeolian
Skinner Company in Boston to
.The remaining work will be done
as soon as the new console arrives
some time in April. "We tried to
retain the character of the old or-
gan," Prof. Robert Noehren, Jni-
versity organist commented, "by
combining the best of the old with
the best of the new."
Prof. Noehren will give the first
of three organ recitals March 6,
with a dedication program sched-
ule for next fall. The two other
recitals will be March 13 and 20.
Included on the dedication pro-
g-am will be a series of recitals
by University music faculty mem-
bgrs and the publication of a book-
let describing the organ, its history
and program notes.

"After this repair job," Prof.
Noehren commented; "the organ
can last another 25 years, if it is
used with the same amount of
wear and tear. Students are using
it for either teaching or practic-
ing, from 7 a.m to midnight every
day, all year round, except for
"In reality," he continued, "the
instrument has had about 100
years use since its last repair job
in 1926. Most organs are used
for Sundays services and church
gatherings for only a few hours a
The organ covers four levels in
an area 50 feet high, 75 feet long
and 20 feet wide. More than 7,000
pipes and 600 miles of wire are
used in it.
"We have combined the best in
French, German and American
organs so, that music form all na-
tional schools can be played ade-
quately," Prof. Noehren comment-
"German and French reeds are
used," he continued, "and we have
the famous "Vox Uhmana" reg-
ister. The register sounds almost
like the human voice, and was
built by the famous French or-
gan builder, Cavaille-Coll."

organ for Chicago's Columbian
