  • Recentely Expanded Pipe Organ in My Area



    Hi all,





    <>I live in Covington, Georgia, a suburb of
    Atlanta. The First United Methodist Church here recently
    completed a re-building and expansion of their Austin Organ (Op. 2577)
    built in 1974. It has been expanded by 15 ranks. The work
    was completed by Jay Mitchell and Associates. The console was
    also changed from a two-manual to a three-manual. Below are the
    specifications of the expanded instrument.

    Hi Allen,



    We were in attendance yesterday for the AGO gathering over in Covington. Besides that Austin we also heard the little Wicks over at the Presbyterian church. That was almost an all-day affair. Great food and even better company. Were you there?

      Don,





      While not an AGO member, I was at the
      Concert at the Methodist Church. Due to other obligations I was
      not able to make the concert at the Presbyterian church. However,
      I have been to numerous organ concerts and recitals at the Presbyterian
      Church.





      I know Becky Ramsey well. She actually
      went helped me pick out my very first organ from Jim Scott Pianos and
      Organs. I do not know Alice Walker very well. I have met
      her a couple of times, but I don't know if she would remember me.





      Later,



      Allen
