The Kramer Chapel Organ

The Kramer Chapel Organ is an integral part of the stunning total Kramer Chapel design. This design unity is not an accident, for architect, Eero Saarinen, and organ builder, Herman Schlicker, worked together for the magnificent result. Here are some facts about the instrument that created quite an interest in the organ world, in the LCMS, and in Fort Wayne in the 1950s.
