New Chancel Organ

SCHOENSTEIN OPUS 173

Our new chancel organ was built by Schoenstein & Co., installation having been completed in September 2018.  Opus 173 is their first organ in Oklahoma and one of their few in the central United States. It is the featured instrument in the February 2019 edition of The Diapason.
 
Other recent Schoenstein installations include:
 
Latter Day Saints Conference Center – Salt Lake City, UT
Schermerhorn Symphony Center – Nashville, TN
Fordham University – Bronx, NY
Georgetown University – Washington, DC
St. James Episcopal Church, Madison Avenue – New York, NY
St. Martin’s Episcopal Church – Houston, TX
 
Opus 173 was principally designed to accompany choral and congregational music in the Anglican tradition. The instrument features the Schoenstein Double Expression system in which the Swell division has two sets of expression shades – the softest and loudest ranks of pipes are placed behind the inner-most set of shades.
