The American Guild of Organists fosters the appreciation and enjoyment of organ and choral music through recitals and workshops.

 

WYATT PARK CHRISTIAN CHURCH was organized in 1880 as a mission of First Christian Church to serve the newly annexed “Wyatt Park”  neighborhood.  The first building was a small Gothic style frame church, which served until the 1920’s when the present building was constructed at 27th and Mitchell Avenue.  In 1957, a new sanctuary was built featuring a parabolic roof and a large stained glass window representing the Creation by the Frei Studio of St. Louis.  The church contracted with a local organbuilder, who planned a new organ utilizing used components and later defaulted on the job. 

W. A. Brummer was hired to complete the organ, utilizing what he could of the assembled parts, including a duplex chest from an Aeolian residence organ, which serves as the main Swell chest, making the pedal borrows possible.  The resulting free-standing gallery installation has 28 ranks, including the Choir organ, located in the Chancel.
