Job #:  C751

Location:  Poughkeepsie NY

Organ Type: Pipe

Building Type: School 

Date: 2003 

Vassar College owns 7 pipe organs, the largest of which is a Gress Miles' magnum opus, which resides in the chapel. The original hand crafted casework from the 1901 Hutchings organ is still in use. In 2004 Foley-Baker was commissioned to upgrade the instrument, the mechanical switching which had been installed 34 years earlier was failing; being intermittent at best, and contacts were pitted to the point that they were breaking off.

 

Scenario:

  • 99 stops playing over 5,700 pipes, all direct electric
  • 4 manuals, 5 divisions
  • 16 stage expression engines for Swell & Brustwerk
  • Primary control panel mounted in drawer under right jamb with additional small numeric displays for Memory and Registration Sequencer levels for quick reference by organist
  • 5 MIDI stops, fully integrated into combination action and fully configurable, settable to be coupling or non-coupling at discretion of organist.
  • 254 independent combination memory levels with SFZ configurable on each level
  • 254 step Registration Sequencer independent of memory levels with dedicated Next & Last pistons
  • Manual Transfer, 12-step Transposer via UP/DOWN pistons

 

Components:

  • Console:  CCC-5, CCU/CCIO-3, CTRL-2, ND-2
  • Chamber: 6xPCU/PCIO-1, PCC-1C
