A Wartburg professor records an album in honor of the organ
WAVERLY, Iowa (AP) — Karen Black pulled out all the stops to honor the 25th anniversary of the Wartburg Chapel Dobsonian organ. The Wartburg College organ professor has recorded and released a new album, “Ein feste Burg”.
The album includes seven works that celebrate the organ, designed by Lynn Dobson and built and installed in 1996 by Dobson Organ Builders in Lake City, a highly respected organ builder who designed and installed organs nationwide. It also honors Wartburg’s heritage as an institution of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and as a college founded by German immigrants.
