Summer Organ Sampler Concerts at the University of Dubuque Heritage Center will debut this summer with 30-minute presentations that showcase the new custom-crafted John and Alice Butler Pipe Organ in John and Alice Butler Hall. Open to the public, the event is free to attend. No ticket is required. Attendees will receive a voucher for a free ice cream treat from Mike and Betty’s Ice Cream Shoppe after the performance.
The University of Dubuque dedicated the John and Alice Butler Pipe Organ on May 15, 2021. Designed for teaching, solo recitals, and performances with other musical ensembles, the pipe organ will expand students’ musical horizons and enhance campus events for generations. It was gifted by UD Trustee John Butler (DHL’17) and his spouse, Alice (DHL’17). Dobson Pipe Organ Builders of Lake City, Iowa, built and installed the pipe organ - the 97th new organ built by the firm.
