Organ Crawl at Colloquium Includes Mormon Tabernacle
by Arlene Oost-Zinner
Starting at 7:30pm on Wednesday, June 27, an optional tour of local organs will center around the famous 1948 Aeolian-Skinner organ, with its iconic 1867 façade, in the Mormon Tabernacle. Considered one of the finest examples of "American classic" organ building, it is also one of the largest organs in the world with just over 200 ranks and 11,600+ pipes. Additional optional instruments to see at Temple Square are the monumental 2003 V/130 Schoenstein in the Conference Center, and the 1983 III/65 mechanical-action Sipe organ in the Assembly Hall.
