Meanwhile, Christ Church anounces that its new Jack Hennigan Memorial organ arrived in Pelham on October 8 and the 8-week process of installing it has begun. The arrival culminates nearly two years of careful planning, designing, and building.
The organ is the gift of Martin Nash, a member of Christ Church.
This new pipe organ is the product of the Montreal firm Juget-Sinclair Facteurs d’orgues and is the 51st bespoke instrument this company has built. While the team from Juget-Sinclair works to install the organ, Concerts at Christ Church will host an entire season’s worth of great performances in its historic Christ Church.
The Juget-Sinclair, Opus 51 pipe organ will make its public debut on the afternoon of December 8, 2019 at 5:00 pm in an early Christmas celebration of the classic and well-loved Anglican Service of Lessons and Carols. This event will be free and open to the public. A freewill offering will be collected.
