Join us for this concert of music for organ and brass, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the installation of the Schantz pipe organ at Anchorage Presbyterian Church.
This is the third pipe organ in this space, the first being installed in 1906, the second in the early 1950s, and the current organ installed in 2003.
This organ was built by the Schantz Organ Company, of Orville, Ohio, and has 1,434 pipes, 25 chimes, a Zimbelstern (bells which move in a circle when turned on), 122 keys on the 2 manuals/keyboards, 32 pedals, 3 swell pedals (controls volume) and 49 buttons/pistons which help to control the sounds/stops. You can see and hear much more about the mechanics of the organ, go inside the organ divisions, and see organ performances on our interactive webpage at www.anchoragepresbyterian.org/organ-celebration.
