Opus 82

Immanuel Lutheran Church
Cedarburg, Wisconsin

Year Commissioned 1994

The original organ for this sanctuary was an electro-pneumatic instrument. This Romantic-styled instrument was seen as inadequate and was mechanically unstable and beyond repair. Opus 82 was commissioned in 1994 as a replacement and as an instrument that offer a larger repertoire possibility.

The organ is located on the balcony of the sanctuary. The organ case is made of solid oak and the raised panels are quarter-sawn oak. The pipe shades are carved and plated with 23.5 karat gold. The organ console is detached. Between the organ case and the organ console there is ample room for the church choir. The instrument has a Zimbelstern.

Scott Riedel served as Organ Consultant and David Brandt was the Architect on this project.
