1930 Frank Legge Organ for Chestermere High School Band Program

 

The genesis of this project started in 2015 with the urgent call from a family in Calgary that had to remove a pipe organ that their father had installed in his basement in the 1970’s. The house was slated for demolishing to build a new in-fill, and the organ had to go to a good home.

 

Originally built for a funeral home in Calgary, the organ was being donated by the family to the Chestermere High School Band Program. After a few years of trying to finalize a location in the school, it was decided that the best place was in the large band room, which can double as a small performance space as needed.

 

The 2 manual and pedal instrument is of unit design employing 4 ranks and chimes. The original electropneumatic switching and relay are being retained and being fully restored.
