Assembly Hall Concert Organ

Assembly Hall Concert Organ
The Assembly Hall concert organ was built by Robert L. Sipe of Garland, Texas, as part of the renovations surrounding the building's 100th anniversary.

The wooden case and console were carved in Salt Lake City by Fetzers' Inc. and Richard McDonald, and incorporate extensive symbolism relevant to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The specification displays the same eclectic approach as that of the Tabernacle organ, but with a nod to the traditional European schools of organbuilding.
