Description: Organ

This magnificent pipe organ is a unique work of visual art, with its 22-foot-tall wooden case covered in painted details and carved, gilded flourishes. It is also a working instrument, brought to Rochester by the Eastman Rochester Organ Initiative (EROI) in October 2005. As the only full-size Italian Baroque organ in North America, the organ offers music lovers a unique opportunity to hear Baroque music played on an original Baroque instrument.
