Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments
Faculty and student soloists demonstrate instruments by Flentrop, Aeolian-Skinner, Brombaugh and Holtkamp on the campus of the famed Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio.
The Oberlin Conservatory was established in 1865 as an adjunct to the co-educational Oberlin College, they each being the first such institutions of their kind in the United States. At present, the Conservatory serves approximately 500 students, a bit less than one-fifth of the total college population. In addition to the 1974 Flentrop tracker organ, III/44, in Warner Concert Hall and the 1955 Aeolian-Skinner, III/68, in Finney Chapel, the campus boasts 23 other pipe organs of various sizes and styles for practice, teaching and performance.
