St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Parkersburg, West Virginia – A Testament of Time
Shown here inside St. Paul Lutheran Church in Parkersburg, West Virginia, are the new Allen GX-235DK (left) beside their Allen 301C MOS 1 digital organ originally installed in 1971.
The Allen organ had served the congregation for 50 years and was playing a service on the day the new organ was installed. The organ had only two service calls during its long life at St. Paul’s.
A new Allen organ was desired in order to get the new features that have been introduced with the Allen APEX tone generation! GeniSys Display – Touch screen console controller, GeniSys Voices, WiFi with Smart Phone Remote, and the dramatic difference in the realistic pipe tone available with APEX Technology.
(2019) This is our 26th year that Duquesne University’s Music Department chose our company to provide the Allen Organ for their Commencement exercises. We set organs in two places; one in the Student Union Hall for Baccalaureate, and this year for additional space, Commencement was held at PPG Paint Arena, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-time winners of the Stanley Cup! This arena has seating for 19,000. Our Allen filled the huge space with great organ music and led the thousands attending Commencement in hearty hymn singing!
