Renaissance™ Three-Manual Instrument
The Academy's Memorial Chapel witnessed a very favorable debut of their three-manual Renaissance™ organ. Its first official performance demonstrated not only its exciting pipe-like tonal abilities, but also its expansive musical range. Dr. Robert G. Newton, Organist, stated that the Allen replaced an aging pipe organ which was installed when the chapel was built in the 1950s. He also added that the Allen console is inviting to play-he particularly enjoys the the pleasure of the instrument's reliability. Dr. Newton and his staff were also pleased with the professional and courteous way Allen's Connecticut dealer, Church Organ Sales, Glastonbury, Connecticut handled the design and installation details. The Memorial Chapel, located on the Academy campus, is open to the public every day from sunrise to sunset, and invites anyone to visit.
