The Yarm School – A Custom Built Digital Organ For 700-seat Auditorium
The Yarm School, founded in 1978, is an independent school in the picturesque village of Yarm in North East England.
We were delighted to install our Regent Classic in the school’s stunning Princess Alexandra Auditorium. We tailored the instrument according to the school’s requirements and custom-built the Regent Classic in a Cavaille-Coll style console, which they were pleased to have, as this is found in only a few schools in the UK. (The picture above shows you how we drilled stop holes into the curved jambs,)
Built to the same standards as a conventional pipe organ, but occupying just a fraction of the space, the digital church organ has 69 speaking stops across four manuals, which allows the accompaniment of any choral or orchestral work.
In September 2013, at the inaugural concert for the Alexandra Auditorium, the school was pleased to have David Briggs, the world renowned American organist play our instrument.
Here are some pictures of this project:
