The casework is well on its way to completion with most of the framework, inside and out, ready for the moulding to be cut, fit and glued in place.
Also shown are the windchests nearing completion. The toe boards that get screwed to the tops of the chests are fitted with rackboards now waiting for the pipes to be fitted. Pipe making and voicing are ongoing and the sounds are great.
Here are some pictures of the earliest stages of our new organ, being built by Paul Fritts & Co. in Tacoma, Washington.
These include the floor frame in place, a close-up of the channel dividers in the windchest grids, case back panels, Oak being brought into the woodshop by Andreas and Rain, Greg soldering pipe feet, cut out pipe pieces, cut out pipes in the trays, completed Rohrflöte 4′, and the windchest grids.
The St. Thomas Allegro Choir, Grades K-2
Rehearsals, Wednesdays, 5:00-5:30pm, Choir Room
(Optional Dinner with the Choristers, 5:30-6:00, and playtime with Ms. Linda, 6:00-7:00pm)
Many kids at this age show a great interest in music, but often times parents find that they are a little young to begin instrument lessons. The Allegro Choir is the perfect solution: we teach beginning music ideas, how to sing, and how to be a part of a successful team. Parents can drop off their children at the choir room and then go upstairs to fix a cup of coffee or tea. The Choir sings four Sundays a year as part of the 10:15am service at St. Thomas.
