Musical Instruments

On a given Sunday, in addition to the choir, our service may include musical accompaniment from organ, piano, handbells, flute, guitar, or cello. Below are descriptions of Immanuel’s keyboard instruments and handbells.

Austin Pipe Organ (Hartford, CT) 1969
Three manuals—Great, Swell and Choir—plus Pedal. 1,994 pipes made of lead, tin, zinc and wood, arranged in 34 ranks. Installed in May 1969, and dedicated at a special service and organ recital by Hinson Mikell on October 1, 1969.

Steinway L Piano, 1959 – Choir Room
The Steinway Model L is considered to be a baby grand piano; that is, any grand piano below six feet long. Steinway builds instruments with a sound quality that has made them internationally renowned. Many pianists choose this model for their home or practice instrument.

Wm. Knabe Piano – Church
Donated by the family of former parishioner Denise Cooper  in 2013. Wm. Knabe & Company was a piano manufacturing company in Baltimore, Maryland from the middle of the nineteenth century through the beginning of the 20th century, and continued as a division of Aeolian-American at East Rochester, New York until 1982. It is currently a line of pianos manufactured by Samick Musical Instruments. Knabe was historically called the “singer’s piano” because of the comparatively more mellow tone than that of other manufacturers.

Clavinova
This Yamaha made 88-key fine quality digital piano has many versatile functions. Voices include piano, harpsichord and organ, with a piano weighted-key touch. It has a rich, subtle sound and exceptional dynamics from pianissimo to fortissimo. Internet Direct Connection (IDC) functions expand music enjoyment.
