The pipe organ is often referred to as the “King of Instruments.” With virtually an orchestra at one’s fingertips, the number of sounds and colors are limitless. Many of the textures and timbres of our magnificent pipe organ will resound on Sunday, January 26, at 4:30 p.m., when Gayle Sullivan will present an organ concert on the brilliant sanctuary pipe organ. This instrument of 68 ranks (rows), over 4000 pipes, four manuals (keyboards) and pedal was installed in 1988 with tonal revisions and electronic updates in 2012.

This concert is in celebration of Gayle’s 30 years of music ministry at Belmont UMC and offered as a gift to the congregation and community. The concert will include a variety of selections from classical organ repertoire from the 19th through 21st centuries by composers from England, France, Germany, and America.

Following the concert, there will be a reception in the Community Center.
