Bromley Organ Update 

May 2020

Noelle and Jason offer an update on the construction happening both here in Alexandria and at the workshop of Harrison & Harrison in Durham, England, in this video:




April 2020

Our new Bromley Organ is currently being constructed in Durham, England, at the workshop of Harrison & Harrison. This organ firm is one of the world’s most prestigious and oldest builders. We know this will be an instrument our parish can be justly proud of as we share it with both our own congregation and the larger community around us. If you'd like to learn more about the incredible process of constructing of a pipe organ, check out this clip from Discovery Channel's How It's Made.

Even in this time of great uncertainty, we have so much to be grateful for at Christ Church. We are grateful to each of the early donors who ensured we could proceed with purchasing our new instrument, which will serve our church for decades, perhaps even centuries, to come. And we are grateful that work to support the installation of the organ continues, even as the church buildings are currently closed.

At the end of December, workers began removing our 1975 Austin Organ. In the process of doing so, we discovered that the balcony would need more repair and reinforcement than originally estimated. Not unlike home construction projects, the cost of this work has increased as it has progressed, and we need to ask for your help in raising $200,000 for the organ installation. You can sponsor a key, stop, pedal, or octave of pipes and have the opportunity to be recognized in a listing that will hang beside a drawing of the new organ displayed in the church's upper level. 

Your contribution will help build a strong and exciting musical future for our parish. For years to come, people at Christ Church will be lifting their voices in praise to God in song with the assistance of this magnificent organ. We are grateful for any help you can offer to make this possible.
