Littlefield Organ Celebration

TIME: Fri 1:30PM-2:30PM

PLACE: Kane Hall, Walker Ames Room

Students of Organ Professor Carole Terry perform on the UW’s famed Littlefield Organ.

Installed in 1990, the Littlefield Organ is a tracker action organ modeled after 17th Century German and Dutch instruments. Featuring 979 pipes in 18 ranks, ranging from 10 feet in length to the size of a pencil, the organ includes nine types of wood—fir, oak, redwood, Brazilian mahogany, sugar pine, ebony, maple, poplar, and European beech. Constructed by Paul Fritts & Company Organ Builders of Tacoma, the organ is dedicated to brothers Edmund and Jacques Littlefield, whose gift to the School of Music enabled the organ’s construction.
