Canton Chapter AGO Member's Recital February 22, 2015 Sacred Heart Church, New Philadelphia, OH
On Sunday February 22 the Canton Ohio Chapter AGO sponsored a Member's Recital at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in New Philadelphia Ohio which included the 2012 Kegg pipe organ. Performers were, in order of performance, Mark Thewes and the Westbrook Park UMC Brass Ensemble, Sara Kepple, Sandy Simpson, Noah Carpenter, Gabriel Lane, Rich Geib, and Chad Pittman.
Pictured above are Chad, Mark, Noah, Gabriel, Rich and Sara.
The splendid acoustic of Sacred Heart Church was filled fine music including an enthusiastic congregation for hymns. Below are several selections from the concert. I was personally delighted with the Bach by Noah Carpenter. It is played in an unusual style but with fire and energy. Many thanks to all involved for a most rewarding afternoon!
Santa Fe, NM Moller Artiste player organ restoration Private Residence
We have restored a Moller residence organ from 1933 which includes the Moller Artiste player with rolls. This organ was originally 5 ranks plus chimes and installed in a home in Hornell NY. It was prepared on the console and in the original drawing for a Harp and a soft string stop. We have added these using vintage Moller parts including switches to add to the original Moller relay. All additions were made in the locations shown on the original drawing and the organ will be installed in a new space that has been built identical to the original. The organ plays on all restored original electrical control systems. The photo you see is of the organ set up in the Kegg shop. The YouTube video is of the Artiste playing a roll that features the new Harp. This organ will be installed in its new home in February 2015.
Our new organ for Bryn Athyn Cathedral was featured on the cover of the December 2014 issue of The Diapason. Please have a look at the article and click below for more information about the instrument. Please be patient as the article is a large file.
Church on the Circle United Methodist Cleveland, Ohio New Kegg console
We have built a new console for this organ that was built by E.M.Skinner in 1927 as Opus 645, and extensively rebuilt by Holtkamp in 1954. The chancel of the church has been remodeled to open the space with a new marble and stone floor in addition to making the chancel completely accessible. This movable console includes carved details from portions of woodwork that was removed in the chancel renovation. The console was in place for Christmas of 2014.

Our current project is a significant rebuild and additions to the 1960s Otto Hoffman organ of this church. The organ will enjoy a new Choir division along with tonal changes and additions to shift the color of the organ from German to French. The design was done in collaboration with Director of Music Keith D'Anna and will be 4 manuals and 65 ranks. The completion of this instrument will be in time for Easter, 2015.
