Event:10th Anniv. on the Cape
Date:Saturday, June 12, 2010
Time:11:30 am
Location:Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans, MA.
Description:June 12–13: The Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans on Cape Cod, MA celebrates the 10th Anniversary of its Dedication, and another milestone in the building of its E.M. Skinner Pipe Organ (by Nelson Barden & Associates, Boston). On Saturday, June 12 at 11:30 am, Gerre and Judith Hancock will perform a Duo Recital and Demonstration on the church’s E.M. Skinner Pipe Organ. The celebration continues on Sunday June 13, when Gerre Hancock will accompany the Service of Holy Eucharist at 10:15 am, and Thomas Murray performs In Concert at 3:30 pm. At their fingertips will be the new Echo Division, playable from a secondary console, attached to the main Skinner console. The Echo Division is comprised of 30 ranks, with 1773 pipes. That brings the organ to a total so far of just over 8,000 playable pipes, in addition to the Processional and Antiphonal Divisions, the Choir Division, the North Great, the Swell, and more Pedal. With the Echo Division playable, the organ now speaks from every corner of the church. This is in keeping with the original vision for the organ: to enable the entire building to sing!
