THREE-MANUAL PIPE ORGAN
This is a notable thirty-seven rank instrument built in 1989 by the Austin Organ Company of Hartford, Connecticut. During Lent, recitals are presented by local organists in the spirit of the season.  Occasionally, we venture out a bit further, as was the case in 2010 when we invited Mark Pace, organist of St. Paul’s Church in Concord. As well, organists periodically perform for purely concert purposes. Currently, one of our church families is making possible the addition of a new “stop” for the organ.  Called an 8’ Diapason, this rank will furnish a unique layer of warmth and color.
