Hope for the future

The future is bright for new and young organists!  We simply need to provide opportunity for training, adequate practice time, and support for them!

New Ulm's installation will have youth programs integrated into its offerings. She'll reach those pedals soon!

Pedal case install

More pipes and casework were delivered today. The pedal "towers" are being installed, two windchests per side.

Windchests and beautiful woodwork in place.  

Choir risers

As with most of the organ, the project has been primarily handmade, rather than store bought. The choir risers have taken shape, made from I-beam joists and traditional construction materials.

The risers are moveable, to allow reconfiguration of the loft and console. They are covered with the same flooring and finished with a cinnamon stairnose for safety and design. Three down, five to go!
