Noack Organ

May 1 2012

In 1980 First United Methodist Church had a Noack Tracker organ installed in the main sanctuary.  The Noack Organ Company is in Georgetown, Massachusetts and has built organs all over the World.  Here is the information about the builder from their website:

FRITZ NOACK served his apprenticeship from 1954-58 in Hamburg with Rudolf von Beckerath, then one of the leaders of the historically oriented builders in Europe. Journeyman time with Klaus Becker, Ahrend & Brunzema and Charles Fisk preceded his founding of The Noack Organ Company in 1960. Professional associations include the American Institute of Organ Builders, the American Guild of Organists, the Organ Historical Society, Association Aristide Cavaillè-Coll and the Gesellschaft der Orgelfreunde. He is married to Betje van Dam of Groningen, Holland, and has four children. His hobbies include research on historic organs and playing the viola.

Our Noack Organ is used regularly on Sunday mornings, for Organ Concerts, the many students who regulary practice and many other concert situations.  If you are interested in learning more about the organ, follow the links below.
