Downtown Presbyterian Church

Nashville, TN

Project Completed 2009

 

Downtown Presbyterian Church has a Austin pipe organ (Opus 443) that had been expanded by our firm in 1972, to a total of 48 ranks. In 2008-09 we did a major upgrade and refurbish to the organ. Over a three month period, our firm replaced each pouch and stop action with new, hair sheep leather. The console was taken out and upgraded to a solid state system, with new silver key contacts and stop controls. We also took the reed pipes back to our shop to clean and re-voice.

The massive organ in Downtown Presbyterian Church has accompanied every Sunday service for nearly 100 years.
