NEW! The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens preserves the Miami Estate of International Harvester Vice President James Deering. The European-inspired main house overlooks the Biscayne Bay, and its lavishly decorated interiors feature a dazzling collection of art objects and antique furnishings from around the world.
Vizcaya's organ was designed for Deering by M. Welte and Sons of New York. Containing over 1,000 pipes, the installation in Vizcaya's Renaissance Hall took six weeks. The organ may be operated manually or by an automatic electro-pneumatic roll player above the keyboard. The organ builder sent Deering two hundred organ rolls to consider. Of this collection, Deering purchased over half of them. Some of the featured performers in the collection of rolls were Gigout, Bossi, Eddy, and Lemare.
