Michigan State University
Létourneau Pipe Organs has been chosen by Michigan State University to build a new pipe organ for their Alumni Chapel. This all-new instrument of 36 ranks will be the second Létourneau on the MSU campus, the first being a portative organ in Fairchild Theater. A flexible two-manual design, the specification necessarily reflects the instrument’s many roles for teaching, practice, recitals, and choral accompaniment, as well as complementing the many ceremonies that take place in the chapel (including approximately 160 weddings annually). Létourneau’s Opus 134 will take the place of the chapel's long-silent Pels pipe organ from 1953; installation is planned for 2020 upon the completion of chapel renovations.
