Our 2022-23 season is very special since we will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of our Austin Organ, Op. 1040. (Please see enclosed flyer) The kickoff concert will be Sunday, October 9, 2022, at 4 pm featuring F. Allen Artz, III as guest organist. There will be some special presentations that day as we express our gratitude to patrons of music here at Trinity and the technicians who keep the organ in good working order. We hope to have a gala reception following this anniversary concert.
As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the organ, we would like to think our magnificent instrument will continue to enhance our worship for as long as possible. As many of us grow older, we realize that creaks and groans accompany the maturity of our years. And so it is with the aging glory of our mechanical organ. Just think over 100 years how many hours have been spent practicing and playing for services — mind-boggling! There are repairs to be made and an anticipated refurbishment of the organ console, however; this is an expensive proposition. Donations in memory of someone or thanksgiving for blessings will be welcome to continue the legacy of the Austin organ and the musical traditions at Trinity.
