Schoenstein to Waco
A new three-manual, 27-voice, 32-rank organ under construction at the Schoenstein & Co. factory is to be installed at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Waco, Texas as part of a major campus-wide expansion and renovation of this rapidly growing parish. The main organ is in a north chancel chamber. Unenclosed stops for congregational support and children’s choir accompaniment along with the Pedal Open Wood are in the west gallery. Acoustical consultation is by Paul Scarbrough of Akustiks LLC, Norwalk, CT. The tonal design is focused on support of the Anglican service. The organist and director of music is Eugene Lavery.
