We are honored to have been contracted to rebuild the console of the Casavant pipe organ installed at First United Methodist Church in Cheraw, South Carolina. The instrument was built by Casavant Freres' in 1980 as their opus 3497. In our work we will rebuild the current console with its failing mechanical combination action by installing an all new, Virtuoso system as built by Integrated Organ Technologies. This new system will allow for many years of reliable service. As part of this project we will perform extensive revoicing and finishing of the instrument to provide a more graceful and elegant sound for this historic sanctuary.
