Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania
Bryn Athyn Cathedral
Chara Aurora Cooper Haas Pipe Organ
We are pleased to announce the commissioning of a new pipe organ project for the Bryn Athyn Cathedral. We will be restoring and joining two vintage E.M. Skinner pipe organs from the late 1920s into a single instrument and provide several new stops to complete the specification. Both organs, opus 574 and opus 682, will enjoy new structure, expression enclosures, winding and electrical systems. Original wind chests, pipes, regulators and tremulants will be retained. All work will be done in the style of the original builder. Also there will be new cases and a new console, all highly decorative in the style of this Ralph Adams Cram building. Completion will be in the later half of 2014. Watch here for more news of this exciting project.
November 2013 update: This project has been expanded and the Echo division replaced by the Celestial division. This new division will be located in the attic space above the crossing and will speak down into the lantern. Additions to the original Echo spec include a pair of Gross Gambas, a very high pressure Tuba Mirabilis and Flauto Mirabilis, and Deagan Tower Chimes installed inside the building. Special features also include the Celestial tremolo available to be added via 2nd touch. This will permit the musician to easily add the tremolo to held notes and instantly retire it on moving notes. We believe this to be a first in orchestral organ features.
September 2014 update: The organ is nearing completion and is sounding very well in the room with a very excited parish watching the process. The dedication will be on Friday November 21 with Peter Richard Conte playing the concert. Please make plans to attend this with us.
Paul Jacobs and Laredo Philharmonic
Texas A&M International University
On Sunday September 29th, Paul Jacobs appeared with the Laredo Phil in concert. I was in attendance and it was a spectacular event. Paul and the Laredo Phil presented a fine program including the Guilmant Organ Symphony No. 1. Paul also played the Bach Big A-minor Fugue as an encore. Among the other pieces by the orchestra was the Smetana Die Moldau, which has long been a favorite of mine. Many thanks to all involved for a fine afternoon.
