Central Presbyterian's

Pipe Organ

Central’s Reuter pipe organ (Opus 1395) is a 3- manual, 50-rank instrument that was installed in 1962 by the Reuter Organ Company of Lawrence, Kansas. The pipework of the un-encased great and pedal divisions is located in the center, with the enclosed swell pipes on the right and the enclosed choir pipes on the left. The beautiful hand-painted façade pipes are non-speaking, and along with the swell vox humana, the pedal 32’ Bourdon, and the choir Nason Flute, are retained from the original 1893 Farrand and Votey (Opus 130) that it replaced.
