From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: The two-manual mechanical action organ in the large organ studio on the fifth floor of the Juilliard building was built in 1969 by Flentrop Orgelbouw of The Netherlands. Faculty member Vernon de Tar gave an inaugural recital to dedicate the organ on November 10, 1969. Mr. de Tar performed works by Frescobaldi, Schlick, Scheidt, Mozart, Jehan Alain, J.S. Bach, and Handel, with assistance by violinists Sylvia Davis and Muriel Moebius, violist Osher Green, cellist Donald Larson, double bassist Ronald Bozicevich, and oboists Marc Schachman and Steven Taylor. Dirk Flentrop of Flentrop Orgelbouw of Zaandam, Holland, was present for the dedication. In 2009, the studio was reconfigured to be slightly smaller and the Flentrop organ was reconditioned.
