About Our Organ

allen_elite_close_up_front
This church was blessed in June 2008 with the gift of a new organ. Our custom Elite OPUS III by Allen Organ Company has 3 manuals, 5 divisions, 78 stops, a 38-channel audio system, and full MIDI capabilities. In addition to a wide variety of music for worship services, the annual Organ Series Concerts feature resources of the organ to perform many historic and popular styles. Thanks to Friends and the support of community businesses, the concerts have been free and open to the public.

Events have included the following programs:

Spring: Community professional soloists in selections from classical to Broadway. (The performers have also donated a special offering to Monroe County charities.)

Summer SongFest: ESUMC musicians in blend of hymns, folk, gospel, and contemporary songs for audience sing-along.

Fall: Solo concerts by nationally recognized virtuoso artists Aram Basmadjian, Mark Miller, Gordon Turk, Meredith Baker,                                                    Dr. Shelly Moorman-Stahlman and Christopher Johnson.

The church and organ have also been the venue for public cultural events, including the East Stroudsburg University-Community Concert Choir and professional instrumentalists, directed by Dr. James Maroney. Those who wish further information about application requirements may contact the church office.
