The installation of the large four-manual Rodgers organ has begun at the new location of Shepherd’s Grove church and the Hour of Power TV ministry in Irvine, CA.
The church and TV ministry were previously located in Garden Grove, CA. Shepherd’s Grove has joined with the Irvine Presbyterian Church and are remodeling the sanctuary to accommodate television production requirements.
The organ has always been an intrinsic part of the church’s and Hour of Power program. Church Keyboard Center is doing the installation, which will take several weeks.
The building features an interesting contemporary design involving many angles and windows that create an inspiring, light-filled sanctuary. However, it was never intended to have an organ, much less a large organ.
The Church Keyboard Center installation crew is getting creative to find niches and spaces for the 28 speakers that comprise the organ’s audio system and ensuring that all of the wiring is invisible.
