A new organ for Waldensian Presbyterian Church
Waldensian Presbyterian Church in Valdese, North Carolina has chosen Orgues Létourneau of Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec as their organ builder to design, build and install a new 19-rank pipe organ in their historic church. Létourneau’s Opus 133 will reside within a painted case located in the apse at the front of the church from where it will speak directly down the nave. The organ’s two-manual console will be detached and reversed from the organ case and will have mechanical key action. The ebony stopknobs will be in terraced stop jambs and will operate electrically, permitting a complete combination action with 100 levels of memory. Completion is expected for Advent 2017.
