Lenten Concert Series

April 1, 2020 @ 12:30 pm


A Lenten Organ Concert Series is offered at Memorial Presbyterian each year during the Wednesdays of Lent at 12:30pm. Guest recitalists come from across the community, the country, and the world to play Memorial’s 155-rank, over five thousand pipe, Aeolian-Skinner organ. Admission is free. Donations are appreciated.

In 1969, Reverend Dr. David Redding and organist Everett Eubanks approached two long-term members of the congregation about funding a new pipe organ for the congregation. Mr. and Mrs. Howard Johnson, closely tied to the Mellon family of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, provided the money necessary for the project. The church selected the Aeolian-Skinner Pipe Organ Company of Boston, Massachusetts, to install the new pipe organ. The new organ contained 90 ranks and over 5,000 pipes including the chimes from the old Roosevelt-Estey organ. In 1971, the organ expanded with two additional divisions: the Bombarde division above the organ in the casework and the Antiphonal division in the north balcony. The Aeolian-Skinner organ at Memorial Church represents one of the “American Classic Organs” produced by the company during this period. In 2000, R.A. Colby, Inc. of Johnson City, Tennessee, rebuilt the organ console adding new MIDI technology to the organ allowing the organ to be played remotely in six locations throughout the sanctuary.
