Meet Rochester's Newest Pipe Organ

21 Jul 2012 8:39 PM | Anonymous
Come join us for our February 16, 2013 program and see and hear our newest pipe organ in town, a 1/3 portativ built by Giuttari and Bennett of Rehobeth, Massachusetts. This little organ resides in the chapel at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Rochester. The pipes are all constructed of wood and have very gentle sound.  April Beckman of Redeemer will tell us about the acquisition of this organ and another member of our chapter, Andrew Galuska, will also reflect on the shop in Massachusetts, a shop that he once worked at! On the second part of the program on February 16, we will move from Redeemer over to St. John the Evangelist Church to hear the 1/4 portativ in the chapel there. This small organ, built by Reiger-Kloss, has been around a little longer but will be put through some interesting paces at our program.  Plan to join us for Portativs on Parade. April, Andrew, Jeff, Brian, Bob, and Jim are all working hard to prepare an interesting afternoon with these two instruments.
