The School of Music’s organ program prepares students to become skilled performers; well versed in organ history, literature, design, pedagogy, and church music.
In addition to housing a six-organ practice room and also a three-manual Renaissance series Allen organ, the school has two on-site practice/performance pipe organs, the Moller 2/7, and the Lively-Fulcher 3/64, one of the most outstanding tracker organs in Utah.
The school’s Schreiner Organ Endowment supports master classes in collaboration with the local American Guild of Organists chapter, most recently with German organists Frank Scheffler and Felix Hell. Through the school’s Organ Preparatory Program, which offers group classes and private lessons to the community, students receive hands-on teaching experience, under faculty supervision.
The surrounding Salt Lake City community offers numerous opportunities for organists and lovers of organ music alike, with the annual Eccles Organ Festival at the Cathedral of the Madeleine and daily organ recitals at the Mormon Tabernacle on Temple Square.
Alumna Melanie Randall (2011) was named guest organist at the Tabernacle at Temple Square and performed her first recital in March 2014.
