  • Just started an ambitious video project will document Pipe Organs of South Carolina

    Hello! I have been a lurker here for sometime until I pulled home a free analog rodgers organ and got help from these kind forums getting it up and running. Ive been teaching myself ever since and have developed a love for the instrument that I disliked during my years as a piano major. Glad I got over that.

    Anyway I am starting a project attempting to video and play all of the functioning and important instruments in the state.

    Here is the first video. The mechanical action flentrop at the church of the advent. Please subscribe if you like the project and send feedback on organs that should be covered

    I installed three in S.C. when I worked for Gress-Miles; Riverland Hills Baptist in Columbia, Bethel Park Methodist in Denmark and another in Seneca. I don't remember the name of the church in Seneca.

      David,

      Have you considered asking the AGO? I know there is an especially active chapter in Greenville. Composer, Robert Powell is/was a member of that chapter when I was. I remember participating in a master class with Ray Ferguson on a tracker at a Presbyterian church in Greenville. I also remember a master class with John Walker, but don't remember the church or the organ. I just remember him inviting me to play at Riverside if I ever made it there. The First Baptist Church also has a 4-manual Casavant-Frère which was installed in the early 1980s.

      I know Bob Jones University has 2-3 pipe organs on campus, and Furman has a 2 or 3 manual Holtcamp in their chapel as well. I'm not sure if there are any pipe organs on Clemson's campus, though. They're more into football.:-P

      Best of luck on your endeavor.

      Michael

        Not sure what happened to my post.

        I plan on contacting the greenville AGO. I live in Greenville, but work elsewhere. I am very curious what Presbyterian Church has the Tracker. John Knox maybe...

          The Organ Historical Trust of Australia are planning to do a similar thing. their records are severely out of date, and as part of the update process I suggested that they make a short video of each organ demonstrating some of the stops and features of each organ. The process will start in South Australia with an update of all the current organs on the books, then we will go after new organs and moved organs and repeat the process in the other six states and territories.

            The organ I played was in a balcony, 2-manuals if I recall correctly, reverse console (back to the congregation), and was definitely tracker. I couldn't find a description I recognized on the OHS database, so I'm not sure where it is. I know a fellow I can contact who was an organist for one of the downtown Greenville churches. Let me contact him and see what he remembers.

                        Next up is a skinner organ not located in a church. Hopefully will be up before the end of the week.
