Organ nb. 21 Practicing organ at the Jerusalem Rubin Academy at Music and Dance

Gideon Shamir constructed at first a very small positive-like organ to serve as a continuo instrument for symphonic concerts in the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot. Then he took back this small portable organ and turned it into a much larger two-manual-and-pedal instrument. It was set on a rolling platform which allowed the permanent storage of the organ in an adjacent room on the site of Wix Hall, at the Weizmann Institute when it was not needed.
Since then it was transfered to the Music Academy in Jerusalem where it served as a practicing instrument to the students of Mrs. Roloff. It is set on the floor of a small ballet practicing hall
