FIU Music Festival: Sydell Ida Wertheim Organ Showcase

FIU School of Music

FIU guest concert organist, Raúl Prieto Ramírez, will dazzle audiences on the glorious Sydell Ida Wertheim Organ– the spotlight of the Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center. The prestigious 125 year old Schantz Organ Company took nearly a year to build the 26-ton organ that is the largest in Miami-Dade County and one of the most technologically advanced in the country. Just as the Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center was made possible through the generosity of Herbert and Nicole Wertheim, so has their kindness made FIU the recipient of this exceptional instrument. In gratitude, the university dedicated the concert organ to the memory of Dr. Herbert Wertheim’s mother, Sydell Ida Wertheim, who passed away in 1997.
