Type: PERAGALLO OPUS 711
The Peragallo Organ Company is proud to announce the completion of the new 62 rank, three manual and pedal, pipe organ for Williamsburg United Methodist Church. The new organ also features new twin facade hand crafted pipe cases are positioned in front of tonal openings on each side of the sanctuary.
The main organ includes the Grand Orgue, Positiv, Pedal, and Recit Divisions which occupy the pipe chamber on the right side of the nave. The new Grand Choeur division is located behind the left casework and provides a foil to the main instrument and allows for a balance of tonal projection in the worship space to support congregational singing.
The organ key desk is a custom low profile French curved terrace design and is constructed of select hardwoods. The tonal design was developed in collaboration with the church organist, Thomas Marshall.
As part of the installation, the organ committee and the Peragallo's worked to improve the acoustics of the space by adding a new tonal openings on both sides of the sanctuary and adding a new hardwood floor to the sanctuary space. The effect of these site improvements created a wonderfully balanced acoustic for the organ to project down the nave of the church.
The organ was dedicated this past September, and featured the talents of the world-renown organist, Kimberly Marshall. The Peragallo's would like to thank everyone from the Williamsburg United Methodist Church. You all were a tremendious help right from the start of the project and we enjoyed having the opportunity to work with you.
If you have the opportunity to visit or are in the area we hope you can stop by to hear the organ at regular Sunday services.
