Heinz Chapel Organ 1

Heinz Chapel Organ 1

Reuter organ, opus 2176, main console

The pipe organ in Heinz Chapel is the third organ to serve the building. Re-created in 1994-95 by the Reuter Organ Company, it represents a trend in American organ building to re-use existing materials in an environmentally friendly and musically sound manner.

The chancel console (three manuals and pedal) controls all 4,272 pipes (73 ranks) and three electronic pedal stops. For concerts, the console may be moved to the front of the chancel in full view of the audience. A second console (two manuals and pedal) controls a small gallery organ.
