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

Studio 2110

E.V. Moore Building

The organ teaching studios at the University of Michigan are used for instruction, practice, studio classes, organ literature and church music classes and auditions. Prospective students auditioning in Studio 2110 may arrange rehearsal time by contacting Prof. James Kibbie. The Admissions Office will also schedule a brief warmup time on the day of the audition.

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.
