Instruments:

Pipe Organ :  Built by E. M. Skinner in 1925 (Opus 532) for a church in Miami, Florida.   In the late 1970s the organ was relocated to a church in the south metro area of Atlanta. The “United Methodist Women” group of Sandy Springs United Methodist Church purchased the organ in the mid 1990s. It was originally 34 ranks and the Parkey Organbuilders expanded the organ, as well as custom designing the organ chamber. The 16’ Violon was added to the Great and Pedal Divisions and is what you can see in the façade of the case.  It is built in flamed copper and mahogany to match the pews and Sanctuary woodwork. The original console was restored and fitted with new keyboards and Solid State Logic capture and relay systems. Click for more Organ Specification!

Handbells:   We own two sets of Schulmerich Handbells (2 Octaves and 4 Octaves),  2 Octaves of Melody Chimes and various children’s colored bells.

Pianos: We have many beautiful pianos on campus.  Of particular note are the Kawai and Jesse French Baby Grand Pianos in the Sanctuary and the Music Suite.

EVENTS:

Please contact Dr. Marane if you would like to bring yourself or a group to sing/play in a concert or worship at the church
