Opus 83

First Presbyterian Church
Urbana, Illinois

Year Commissioned 1995

The church architecture is contemporary in design and the organ is centered on the balcony.

The organ’s detached mechanical key-action console is approximately ten feet from the organ case; this distance allows for three choir risers between the organ case while preserving the responsive light action keyboard touch Martin Ott is known for. The casework is made of red oak.
