The Charles & Kenda Webb-Thomas & Ellen Ehrlich Great Organ of Alumni Hall, C. B. Fisk, Op. 91
(IMU Alumni Hall)

“The Webb-Ehrlich Great Organ of Alumni Hall, Fisk, Opus 91 consists of 45 stops, 2,838 pipes over three manuals and pedal. The French Baroque-inspired instrument, built in 1987, was previously installed in a specially constructed concert hall at a private residence. In addition to its use for recitals, the organ is a pedagogical resource, providing students and faculty with an instrument with an 18th- to early-19th-century ‘accent.'”

“The Jacobs School of Music is home to three Fisk organs, the largest number of instruments by the pre-eminent builder in any one location in the world. The others are housed in Auer Hall and in the school’s Music Addition building.”

Navigating Campus
The Biddle Hotel is attached to the Indiana Memorial Union. The Musical Arts Center and Simon Music Library and Recital Center are located near enough to Biddle that most attendees will be able to walk to and from buildings.
