Organ

The pipe organ at Westminster was handcrafted by the Schantz Organ Company in Orville, OH. Established in 1873, Schantz is known for their high quality instruments. Designed for a variety of musical uses, the Schantz organ was completed in 1998, and replaced a Möller organ built in 1950.

The Schantz Organ has 4,094 pipes, 71 ranks, 85 independent stops and 4 divisions. It is a complete organ, which performs romantic and pre-classical
music with equal authority. Two unique features of the organ are the
horizontal trumpets in the front of the sanctuary and the high-pressure Tuba Major in the Choir division.

Opus 2148 is an electro-pneumatic instrument. When an organist plays a note, electrical circuitry carries the impulse to open a valve, thus letting air into the
pipe, as opposed to mechanical action (tracker) instruments in which the keys are attached by mechanical linkage to valves admitting air into the pipes.

Through the generous gifts of members of Westminster Presbyterian Church, the organ will undergo a tonal regulation project during the summer of 2019.
