Alexander Memorial Organ (1934), is one of the first and finest American classic style organs, and is among the largest church organs in the West. Experiencing music in our gothic cathedral with its unique acoustics, soaring nave and jewel-like stained glass windows is a feast for the ears, eyes and soul.
