Sponsor an organ pipe
As part of our fundraising appeal for the restoration of the War Memorial Grand Organ, we are offering donors to sponsor parts of the organ, and have their donation noted on a pipe, console or set of pipes. Donations of $10,000 or more will be recorded on a plaque on the narthex stair wall. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
Click 'Sponsor now' and choose the 'sponsor a pipe' section of the donation categories. Insert the amount of your donation and you will be allocated the next available pipe in that category of pipes. A certificate showing the relevant pipe will be sent to you in recognition of your sponsorship.
Contra Bombarde 32'- THE BIG ONES !
The largest 12 pipes in the organ, these are positioned at the back of the organ on the left hand side. They are made from timber and are visible from the Nave of the church. They give a very loud rumble and are generally used when the full organ is played.
Trompette en Chamade pipes
The 61 solo trumpet pipes placed horizontally in the middle of the casework. These are very loud sounding pipes and are used for a loud trumpet solo or fanfare.
Gallery console refurbishment
Sponsor the full refurbishment of the gallery console. This includes an upgrade of all electrical components which currently date from the 1960s. By making this major gift, a plaque will be affixed to the console noting your generosity in funding its operational refurbishment in 2021.
Transept Organ pipes
The 306 pipes which make transept organ are situated on the platform in the eastern transept. This division of the organ provides sound at the front of the church and for accompanying the choir when they are positioned in the crossing (where the nave of the church and the transepts meet).
To sponsor any of these pipes, click here and insert the amount of the sponsorship so we can identify which pipe you wish to sponsor. You will be allocated the next available pipe in that category.
