About the Wertheim Organ:
The glorious Sydell Ida Wertheim Organ is the largest concert hall organ in South Florida and is considered the Crown Jewel of the Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center. The prestigious 125-year-old Schantz Organ Company took nearly a year to build the 26-ton organ. Just as the Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center was made possible through the generosity of Herbert and Nicole Wertheim, so has their kindness made FIU the recipient of this exceptional instrument. In gratitude, the university dedicated the concert organ to the memory of Dr. Herbert Wertheim’s mother, Sydell Ida Wertheim, who passed away in 1997.
