First United Methodist Church

Huntsville, AL

 Project Completed 2004

 

First United Methodist Church in Huntsville, Alabama decided to completely renovate their sanctuary.  What a great time to make additions to the organ!  We protected the organ for the construction period.  We designed a 72-pipe fašade that flanks the wooden cross behind the Choir.  The pipes have the look and feel of real pipes.  The three-manual Schantz has forty-one ranks of speaking pipes.  They are all behind the screens out of sight.  The church wanted to see pipes, and we were able to accomplish this with a substantial cost savings over speaking pipes.  Parishioner, Mr. Preston Hayes, also wanted to add an electronic Echo division to the rear of the sanctuary along with a video camera.  He never liked the looks of that addition and asked us to design a false fašade to go in front of the screen. The pipes have an antique gold finish with a polished silver mouth.  They sit on a dark pecan toe board. The pipes are so prominent; the camera hole is less noticeable. The church and organ were rededicated by the skillful church organist Mr. Harrell Phillips.
