Wiedemann Hall

Building Info

Wiedemann Hall, a 425-seat music venue, is the result of the continuous efforts of Wichita music-lover and philanthropist Gladys H.G. Wiedemann and former Associate Professor of Organ Robert L. Town. The hall, constructed in 1986, houses The Great Marcussen Organ, a stunning pipe organ designed and built on-site by the legendary firm of Marcussen and Son of Denmark. It was the first Marcussen instrument to be built on North America soil.

The organ builders worked with architects to design a concert hall around the specifications of the organ to present the instrument in its ultimate acoustical glory.

The building's superb acoustics keep it in demand as the primary recital and concert hall for the WSU School of Music, as well as drawing renowned organist from around the world for recitals and recording.
