Houlihan-McLean Organ Endowment Fund

2010 marked the 100th birthday of the Austin Opus 301 Organ in the historic Houlihan-McLean Center, home of Performance Music at The University of Scranton.  Built in 1910, the 3,178 pipe instrument is one of very few authentic examples of fully restored early 20th-century American symphonic organs. Since the organ's rebirth in 2005,  concerts enjoyed by students, faculty, staff, and members of the greater Scranton community have  included internationally renowned organists, our own student  ensembles performing significant instrumental and choral works with organ accompaniment, and even a national radio broadcast featuring the instrument.

An endowment fund has been established to provide annual income to preserve and maintain the organ's integrity.  Please visit the University's secure giving site to make a contribution using MasterCard, Visa or American Express.
