Dordt College, Casavant organ, mechanical action organ, tracker action organ, Gerhard Brunzema, Carroll Hanson, Joan Ringerwole
Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, is home to a magnificent three-manual tracker-action organ built by Casavant Frères in 1979. For some thirty-five years, this organ has served the college and its students, campus and area communities, and guest artists well. This illustrated history of the organ describes the selection, installation, and specifications of the instrument. It also includes the comments of a variety of guest organists and details the recently-instituted Joan Ringerwole Organ Recital Series.
