Carol Chanslor Residence
The client requested an installation "to really showcase the organ" in his living room. The Rodgers Masterpiece 928 has two complete sets of audio, with one set installed high in the ceiling of the two story entry hall, and a second set inside the decorative case behind the pipe facade.
The instrument also has Antiphonal speakers located in the dining room ceiling adjacent to the living room. This audio spread enables the instrument to have a warm, full presence throughout the living area without the sound being oppressively loud at any one location.
The owner is a retired Seventh Day Adventist pastor who has played the organ for decades. With a friend, he especially enjoys playing organ and piano duets in the living room.
The decorative pipe case was designed by Robert Knight and custom built in the Knight Organ Company workshop in Ramona, California, near San Diego.
