New Psalmist Baptist Church - Baltimore
New Psalmist Baptist Church, under the leadership of Dr. Walter Scott Thomas, recently moved into their third sanctuary in the Fall of 2010. Their journey started in a beautiful old sanctuary located in downtown Baltimore. During the late 1990s, they moved into a new 1700 seat sanctuary on the outskirts of Baltimore. This sanctuary too was quickly outgrown and a new 4800 seat sanctuary was designed and located at the intersection of Liberty Road and Northern Parkway section of Baltimore.
The church organist, JD Alston and his brother Patrick (an organ professor in Baltimore), both longtime fans of Rodgers organs met with Al Murrell and Dave Yoder of R. A. Daffer Church Organs, Inc. to design the first five manual digital organ to be installed in the Maryland/Washington, DC area for their new sanctuary. The custom Rodgers was installed on a double 40 channel audio system. The console features a custom finish, mechanical drawknobs, wood keyboard and a MX-200 MIDI module.
