 Allen Bravura L-229 DK (drawknob package)

L229eDKconsole-organI am very happy to report that after much hard work the vestry has approved our new organ.   Although it never seems to move forward at a fast enough pace, I am sure that you will be thrilled with the direction they have chosen.   Over the past 24 months they have researched options, reviewed proposals, met with contractors, received professional input, and traveled to listened to existing organs as far away as Charlotte.  

What was decided upon was an expanded version of an Allen electronic organ.   The basic model replicates some of the most impressive organs from around the world.  Along with this, our new organ will be expanded to include pull tabs for the stops instead of buttons and an antiphonal package that will enable the congregation to hear and feel the full impact of the music from both the front and the back of the sanctuary.    Although the sound will come from hidden speakers that will blend into our current decor,  the existing pipes will be retained to present the visual appearance of a traditional pipe organ.  

With any change there will undoubtedly be questions, so I have scheduled two opportunities for this to take place when I return from vacation.   The first will be on Tuesday evening,  August 1st at 6:30PM.  The second will be on Sunday, August 6th between services.   You all are invited to attend these informational gatherings to become better acquainted with our new organ and have all of your questions answered. 

When you get the chance,  please thank your vestry members for their hard work.   Making decision such as this is always frought with energetic discussions and requires an attitude that puts the life of our congregation ahead of personal desires.  They have done a great job of maximizing our worship,  while keeping within very tight budgetary restraints. 

Jane and I are having a very nice time seeing family and experiencing amazing natural scenery.  See you all soon.
