As part of the Kotzschmar organ celebration on August 18-22 the Allen pipe combo organ at Williston Immanuel United Church on High St. in Portland will be used for several events. Organists Walt Strony, Dave Wickerham, Scott Foppiano, and Fred Hohman will lead workshops on Theater organ styles for the classical organ, the music and transcriptions of Edwin H. Lamare, Portland’s 4th Municipal organist and other topics.
The organ at Williston Immanuel is a 3 manual Allen Pipe combination instrument with 64 stops half pipe and half digital. I had the privilege of installing this instrument in conjunction with the Faucher organ company.
Enjoy this clip of organist Aaron Robinson playing this organ.
I hope to see some of you at the celebration!
