The recital was performed by Felix Hell, who showcased the installation’s impressive flexibility with extraordinary skill and virtuosity.
The Infinity 484 Platinum Edition console was interfaced with the church’s original Schantz organ (dating from the 1960s). The church’s Director of Music is Bob Mollard, President of Mollard Batons, who provided the custom batons for those attending the 2014 North American Dealer Meeting in May.

Rodgers Infinity 361 digital organ with 5 ranks of Ruffatti pipes
Artist: Rodney Barbour
Rodney Barbour’s incredible mastery of color and musical balance will be on display, as well as his prodigious technique in a wide-ranging program he calls ‘typically Rodney.’ The Infinity organ’s vast resources will be fully explored as he takes us on a musical journey, from classical to modern, from antiquity to contemporary.

Organ Workshop with Rodney Barbour: “The Ten Pistons”
Ten ‘ready for anything’ general pistons that every organist should set to be ready to play anything at any time.
We will be reviewing and refreshing ourselves on traditional organ registration using the four families of organ tone, and augment that through the amazing Rodgers Voice Palette choices, and Rodgers’ unique organ library (pipe and orchestral) choices available on the new Infinity organ. We’ll also explore Rodgers custom features which enhance the stops, including tuning, temperaments, winding and acoustic enhancement. Rodney says, “If you attend this workshop, your Bach will not be tubby, and your Widor will no longer be boring.” Presented with Rodney’s incomparable musicianship and charm, it is not to be missed.
