Stambough Auditorium :-
Stambaugh Auditorium is fortunate to have in the large concert hall an un-augmented E. M. Skinner pipe organ with a 4 manual console. With 59 ranks altogether, the organ features such rare pipe work as French Horn, Bombarde, Corno di Besseto, Corno di Amore, Tuba Mirabilis, Ophecldide, Triangle Flute, Kleine Erzahler and English (Willis) Mixtures. The only remaining Skinner organ in the area, its pipes vary in size from one, the size and weight of a #2 pencil, to one 30 inches by 30 inches,weighing 750 pounds. The organ is searching for a grant or foundation support to restore it to its original splendor. Other Skinner organs can be heard at Washington National Cathedral, Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Cleveland Public Auditorium, Lincoln Center (later removed and installed in the Crystal Cathedral), and in halls at Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Michigan and UCLA to name only a few. The organ is priceless.
In the 1st century B.C. in Rome, the cake was thrown at the bride or broken over her head as one of the many fertility symbols which then were a part of the marriage ceremony. Cutting the wedding cake together, still a predominant ritual at weddings, symbolizes the couple's unity, their shared future, and their life together as one. The three tiered cake is believed to have been inspired by the spire of Saint Bride's Church in London, England.
