School of Music, Theatre and Dance at the University of Michigan

James Walgreen Organ

Studio 2102, Earl V. Moore Building

The James Walgreen Organ at the University of Michigan was acquired through a generous gift from James Walgreen in honor of his parents, Charles and Jean Walgreen. The organ is housed in Studio 2102 and is used for instruction, practice, studio classes, organ literature and sacred music classes.

The commission of this important addition to the Organ Department’s facilities was made possible in part through a generous gift from the estate of Judith Barnett Metz and Dr. Fred L. Metz. The School of Music, Theatre & Dance has named this organ the Marilyn Mason Organ, honoring Professor Mason for her many contributions to the Organ Department and the University of Michigan.
