The first event of Emmanuel’s year-long celebration of 150 years of ministry in Bel Air begins Sunday, 11 February 2018 at 5:00 PM. Join us then for a special service of Evensong and the dedication of the new Memorial Organ Console. Following the dedicatory prayers, there will be a brief recital that will demonstrate the capabilities and range of the instrument. A modest reception will conclude the evening.
The new console marries the works of Emmanuel’s 1945 Moeller organ with a variety of new electronic elements and parts “re-purposed” from vintage instruments. The work was completed by Luly and Associates, organ builders from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
In addition to creating the new console, Luly and Associates effected upgrades and refurbishments to a variety of other components, from ranks of pipes to a new blower system.
The next public celebration of Emmanuel’s birthday year will take place on Sunday, 18 March 2018 at 10:00, when The Rt. Rev’d Eugene Taylor Sutton, 14th Bishop of Maryland, will preside at a service of Re dedication and Renewal.
