With only 4,100 pipes, the new Holtkamp organ at St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minn., is smaller than the one it replaces. But it will be used in the newly renovated Boe Memorial Chapel for multiple uses, including recitals, accompanying college music ensembles and teaching.
The renovation was driven by a desire to improve and expand options for traditional and cross-cultural congregational music, making it one of the most functional worship spaces in the country, said David Gonnerman, St. Olaf media relations. The chapel was dedicated Feb. 24, complete with a hymn fest using the new Evangelical Lutheran Worship.
