New Pipe Organ at Trinity Cathedral

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral has been a part of downtown Cleveland since construction began in 1901.  Music at Trinity has been a large part of their ministry, but for many decades, the cathedral has been without a main pipe organ at the front of the sanctuary, only a smaller baroque-sized instrument at the rear.

That is all about to change.  Presently, the Muller Pipe Organ Company is installing a large, 51-rank instrument at the front of the sanctuary using pipes from two pre-existing instruments as well as some brand new pipeworks.

WCLV's John Mills spoke to the organists at Trinity, Director of Music Todd Wilson and Associate Organist Nicole Keller, about the instrument, the installation, and what they're looking forward to playing on the new instrument.

More photographs of the instrument and detailed stop lists can be found at the Music Ministry's Facebook page.
