The Saint Paul campus of the University of St. Thomas is home to four quality tracker pipe organs, all built by distinguished North American organ builders. Together these instruments serve as a rich and inspiring resource to the University: by supporting the musical worship in the three major chapels on campus; by serving as teaching, accompanying and performing instruments for University music students, faculty, and ensembles; and as a locus for music concerts that provide invaluable cultural benefits to the Twin Cities community and beyond.
