A fine organ needs it's own space. The way that a Rodgers Organ can emulate a true pipe performance can only be realized if the audio portion is carefully placed within a given space. Pipes have tone that is dimensional. The sound has height, width, and depth and these characteristics must be properly prepared to give the listener the intended musical experience.
In short, we needed to build a proper showroom dedicated to organs. It did not need to be huge, but it did need to be well designed, so we got to work renovating a space within our facilities:
|The first step in creating a new space is dismantling the old one|
We were so excited by the new space that we decided to celebrate with a grand opening event. We invited organists and musicians from all over the Delaware Valley to join us on Thursday June 14th for an afternoon of music and fellowship and were fortunate enough to have Dr. Ina Grapenthin join us in recital.
The day was quite a success!
|The day started with delicious refreshments from Le Bus Bakery!|
|Part of the fun included scheduled tours of our restoration facility. A group examines a Bosendorfer Imperial in restoration.|
|We wish ALL organists were so beautiful|
|Dr. Grapenthin performed beautifully. Her program included works by Bach, but also featured patriotic pieces in honor of Flag Day and Rodgers Organs - built in the USA.|
