St. Anne’s in-the-Fields Episcopal Church, Virtual Zoom meeting
Cost: Free
Details: Join us online as organist Jay Lane and organ builder William Catanesye give a guided tour of the newly expanded Casavant organ at St. Anne’s in-the-Fields Episcopal Church in Lincoln.  The program will be held on Zoom, Monday November 23rd at 7:00, and will be followed by a question-and-answer session and social time.
The organ at St. Anne’s has undergone quite a transformation!  It began as a very modest two-manual instrument, part of a series of “stock” instruments Casavant built in the 1980s.  Having one reed, one 16’ stop in the pedal, and a very screechy mixture, it was marginal at best.  An expansion by Casavant in 2002 added three ranks in the chancel, and replaced the 8’ Chalmeau with a very aggressive 8’ trumpet, but still the organ lacked a great deal; it was serviceable for hymns, inadequate for choral accompaniment, and very limited indeed for any kind of recital playing.  Then in 2016, William Catanesye made a proposal to expand the organ substantially, while still staying within a moderate budget.  This ambitious project, William’s first on this scale, has become a great success!  Jay and William will demonstrate all the many improvements—and you are all invited to come and play at a later date, when we can meet together again safely.
