The organ was transported to Ann Arbor and rebuilt in the old University Hall; formally dedicated in December 1894; in place at the second annual May festival in 1895. Named after Henry S. Frieze, music patron and acting president in the late 1800s. Moved to Hill Auditorium when it was built in 1913. Received extensive repairs in 1928.
