The Organ

church_organTHE NOACK ORGAN, OPUS 100, 1985

Fritz Noack’s first organ in the South, our 62-rank mechanical action organ was inspired by the church’s fine architecture and rich choral tradition. Located in a raised choir gallery within the front, central apse, the organ speaks straight into the nave. Completed in the spring of 1985, the dedication recital was played by Joan Lippincott. Fifteen years later, Lippincott returned to present a progressive recital, The Noacks of Savannah, also featuring the 45-rank instrument in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, just one square north on Abercorn Street. The organ celebrated its 30th birthday in 2015 with a choral and organ concert presented by the Wesley Choir and guest organist Bruce Neswick.
