The Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ
Verizon Hall,
Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Opus 76

“The new Dobson finds its place in the now-long arc of American concert hall organs installed in the last two decades. Up to mezzo forte, it is easily the best and most colourful of this new breed. It meshes with the band with greater refinement and interest than either Dallas or Los Angeles, partly for having, finally, the real range of piano and mezzo voices to do so, but also because the material is treated with uncompromising grace…At Verizon the tone is developed in a way that makes sense in the context of an orchestra hall, not hanging on to any idealism from the Renaissance or Baroque, but establishing the Romantic and Modern as viable ground for elegant sound.”

“…the organ is nothing short of an outstanding achievement, and one audiences seem to love.”

—Jonathan Ambrosino,
Choir & Organ, January/February 2007
