Schoenstein & Co. Organ Builders – Open House
April 7 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Schoenstein & Co. have been building custom organs since 1877. You are invited to attend an open house to see one of the largest instruments in their five-generation history, under construction for installation this summer at The Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe in Orlando, FL. It is a symphonic organ of four manuals, eight divisions, 70 voices, 86 ranks. It features an extensive Solo division including some theatre organ-style stops and a large Gallery division with eight string ranks. The instrument with its two 32′ stops is too large to set up in the factory! Visitors will see and hear the Gallery and Solo divisions, as well as others in process. The Open House a few years ago was a huge hit. Don’t miss this one!
