The Versatile Schantz Pipe Organ

The pipe organ has long been known as the King of Instruments and Centennial United Methodist Church is fortunate to have a wonderful 39 rank Schantz Pipe Organ. It was installed in 1967 by the Schantz Organ Company of Orrville, Ohio, the largest and oldest American pipe organ builder still under management of the founding family. This was the first Schantz organ installed in Minnesota. Arthur Jennings, an acclaimed professor of organ and organist at the University of Minnesota, was the local consultant. The organ has a console of three keyboards and pedal, and 2,545 pipes. It is the largest pipe organ in Roseville.

 

Since 1967, the pipe organ has undergone several renovations and has been well-maintained. On the organ's 20th anniversary in 1987, six ranks were added o the Great, Swell and Pedal divisions by Schantz, as well as some console upgrades. In 2001, as part of the chancel renovation, the organ console was moved from its 'pit' on the right side of the chancel over to the left side by Olson-Lethert Organ Company and was made movable. In 2003, Olson-Lethert added two ranks to the Choir division. In 2013, Brian Sullivan of Obermeyer Organ Company did extensive console upgrades, making it totally digital and electronically adding three more stops, effectively creating a new console. All styles of music work well on this versatile instrument and the sound can vary from a rich and warm softness to the powerful timbre of the full organ.

 

The pipe organ is used to lead hymn-singing in worship, choir and solo accompaniment, and organ repertoire. It has been showcased in numerous inspiring recitals and other concerts, including events for groups such as the Twin Cities American Guild of Organists and the Fellowship of United Methodists in Music and Worship. Centennial United Methodist Church is known for its fine music programs and the many inspiring voices of this magnificent instrument.
