Allen Organ installed in
The Petrozavodsk State Academy of Music
Petrozavodsk, Republic of Karelia, Russia
The Petrozavodsk State Academy of Music is an independent music institute with approximately 100 faculty members and 500 students. The Academy has become a center of excellence for training music professionals, concert activity and musicological research in North Russia. Its more than 4000 graduates work in Russia and in many countries around the world.
This Allen Quantum™ Q370 organ was installed in the newly dedicated and acoustically superior Great Hall of the Petrozavodsk State Academy of Music in Karelia, Russia. The three-manual console was finished to match the stage's floor and shell. In addition to authentic pipe sounds, the instrument provides modern musical sounds through Vista Navigator™.
The organ's primary set of speakers are arranged to create the sense of three organ chamber spaces (Swell, Great-Pedal, and Choir divisions) inside the 405 seat concert hall. There is also a full set of smaller speakers to augment and create a similarly elevated audio image for the organist and orchestra on stage.
