CHRISTMAS BAZAAR - November 26 from 9:00 to 2:00
The organ of St. Jude’s is a three manual Phoenix digital instrument, purchased in 2012. We recently acquired a redundant 1927 Casavant pipe instrument from St John’s Norway, Toronto, and are currently in the process of installing this instrument in our organ chamber which has been an empty space since the first electronic organ was installed in 1968, replacing a previous Casavant pipe instrument. When complete, the digital instrument together with the vintage Casavant will form a hybrid organ, producing both acoustic and electronic sound together. This will produce an instrument with equal versatility to accompany congregational hymn singing, provide sensitive accompaniment to the choirs, and be a worthy vehicle on which to play all the recital repertoire.
St. Jude’s also has a black Kawai grand piano (donated in loving memory of Howard Kelley) in the sanctuary and a white Weber baby grand in the Victoria Hall.
