celebrating 50 years of service - SCHANTZ 40 rank pipe ORGAN
The organ was dedicated in 1965. It was discovered the actual dedication of the organ as May 23, 1965. The Original specification was a 3 manual 30 rank Reuter Pipe Organ. (check back for the original specifications) In 1997 – 98. It was determined the organ needed repair. It was also decided to update the instrument. The redesign was done by Schantz Organ Builders. New ranks of pipes were added. Existing pipework was re-voiced. The worn out console was replaced with a new console that possessed the latest technology. Combining the sophistication of the updated console with the ancient art of wind-blown pipework. The result was a marvelous 40 rank pipe organ with all the bells and whistles. (click here for the specifications). However, as marvelous as it is, it’s still just wood metal and other materials. The most important and valuable component is our organist and director of music Dr. Patricia Hannifan.
