A New Pipe Organ for Baltimore

I did not know that: John Bowen, director of Opera Vivente, is also organist and choirmaster at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church, OV's headquarters. In addition to preparing for upcoming opera productions, Bowen just inspected a new organ to be delivered to the church soon. There is a link in Bowen's post to the Le Tourneau organ builder's web site. Emmanuel is getting a beautiful instrument, and congratulations to them!

(Intrigued, I hope Emmanuel can offer some recitals on the new organ.)
