Organ Program Fundraiser

Missed the livestream but still want to support the Organ Program at the University of Washington? The Organ Program Fundraiser allows the greater community to support organ studies offered in the School of Music. The fund covers the maintenance cost for the three practice instruments (two instruments built by Paul Fritts and one instrument from the Organ clearing house) and the Fritts organ in the Walker-Ames room (Kane Hall).

The fund also supports rental agreements with churches in Seattle to use their spaces for organ lessons, student practice, and recitals. Currently, the organ program utilizes St. Mark's Cathedral, Plymouth Church, St. James Cathedral, University Presbyterian, and St. Alphonsus Church.

The instruments housed in these venues offer a diverse learning opportunity to study organs built in different styles, including American Classic, French Romantic, German Baroque, German Romantic, French Romantic, and Neo-Classic instruments. In the 80-year-plus history of the organ program, relationships with area churches have been a hallmark of the program, allowing students to engage in community outreach and build relationships with area churches, music directors, choirs, instrumental ensembles, and the larger musical community in Seattle.
