Jan 3 Organ Arrival!
Friends in Houston (and especially organists) are cordially invited to drop by St Philip Presbyterian Church on Sunday, Jan 3 anytime after 12:30 pm or so to help unload the new Paul Fritts organ. The case, action, and pipes will be taken off the truck and spread around the interior of the church, and the next day the organ builder and his crew begin the process of putting it all back together in the rear gallery. Reassembly will take about 10 days, then 6-8 weeks of voicing follow, since all the pipes must be tonally finished in the church. We'll be able to use the various stops as they are finished on Sunday mornings, so St Philippians will get to know the wonderful new sounds of the Fritts gradually. Completion is expected by mid-March at the latest, with inaugural festivities planned for Sunday, April 18.
