We invite you to join the music ministry at Sandy Springs United Methodist Church!

SUMMER Music at SSUMC:

Join us this Summer for fun and ringing. During the Summer, SSUMC will hold community handbell workshops. Anyone, from the community, age 10 up is welcome! I especially invite anyone who can’t commit to weekly rehearsals, have never held a handbell before or can’t read music. I will teach you everything you need to know! Of course, if you have played handbells before or can read music, we want you to attend too! Please contact Dr. Marane for more information at nmarane@ssumc.org

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!
