Market Square Presbyterian Church
Market Square Presbyterian Church of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania has signed a contract with Létourneau Pipe Organs to completely rebuild the church’s pipe organ. The project will begin with the removal of the entire instrument from the church, including the Positiv division currently on the gallery rail, to allow for the reconstruction of the church’s two organ chambers. The existing electropneumatic wind chests will be fully reconfigured to suit the new tonal plan while a new four-manual console will be built. Similar to the present, part of the rebuilt pipe organ will be displayed within a new case across the back of the church’s gallery. Nearly three-quarters of the rebuilt instrument’s pipework will be restored from the church’s previous organs by Æolian-Skinner (Opus 1048 from 1947) and M.P. Möller (Opus 11805 from 1991). When complete during the third quarter of 2020, this pipe organ will be our Opus 136.
