    Pipe Organs in Houston Texas

    Going to be near Houston soon. Anyone know which notable pipe organs in the vicinity can be accessed/heard easily?

    Hi Nikam,

    I know that there are several notable pipe organs in the Houston area. I have played one of those, for the wedding of my son-in-law in January 2011. Memorial Drive United Methodist (http://www.mdumc.org/) where Stephen Distad is the organist.

    Visser, a Houston builder installed it in 2007 and has 59 or so ranks. The black rocker tabs above the Swell at the left are for the Antiphonal division, which wasn't operational then I was there in 2011.

    My avatar at left is of me sitting at that console

    What a superbly clear photograph Kh. Thank you. Have just been browsing the MDUMC site; incredible size of collective congregation there, a mere 1300, with 6600 on the electoral roll! Massively dwarfs our 25-30 on a Sunday.
