St. Wawrzyniec Parish, Garno, Poland
Two-Manual 28-stop Allen Protégé
The Allen Organ Company is pleased to announce a new installation in Poland. The two-manual, 28-stop Allen Protégé organ was installed at the St. Wawrzyniec Parish in Garno (part of the Kielce Archdiocese).
The high quality of Allen instruments was a major factor in the decision by the parish to purchase the L9, along with true pipe organ sound, long-term reliability and a ten year warranty. The installation proved to be challenging due to the narrow doorways leading to the balcony. The top of the organ, music rack and roll-top lock were all removed to gain enough clearance to facilitate moving the organ into place. Custom pipe façades and casework were built to enclose the four full-range speaker cabinets.
The organ's possibilities were presented to the parish by Aram Basmadjian who voiced the instrument and provided a short demonstration. The priest and St. Wawrzyniec parishioners are very pleased with the great sounding music thanks to their new Allen organ.
