A new, 2 manual and pedal organ of 21 ranks has been built for the new sanctuary of Living Grace Lutheran Church. The organ retains some core material from the original Schantz organ located in one of the existing churches from the merging congregation. The space for the new organ was planned in cooperation with the music and worship committee, acousticians, and architects. The organ and choir is aligned on the long axis of the nave. Plans were thoughtfully made for good reflective surfaces in the room to foster good musical properties while still retaining respectable response with the spoken word. Construction of the new Sanctuary was completed during the summer of 2006. The organ was finished in the early fall with dedication in October of 2006.
This organ was featured on Pipedreams episode #1041.
