Trillium Legacy organ

James May, organist at the time, supervised the customization of the organ to the needs of the church. Besides worship services, the organ is used for recitals and concerts for the community by our organists and guests. At right, Dorothy Koski, principal organist at the John St. Methodist Church, shows off the new instrument during its first concert, given by several organists. Through the music scholarship program, talented young organists are given opportunities to learn and play this beautiful instrument.

 1821 Pump Organ

Organ 1821

This pump organ happens to be almost exactly the same age as the church, but is not original to it.The organ was built in 1822 by Small and Knight of Portland, one of the finest instrument makers north of Boston. We believe that this instrument is one of the few still in existence and still being played.The old organ was restored and donated to the church in 1995 by Theodore Dorr of Camden. It has a surprisingly mellow, enjoyable tone. From time to time, one of our more courageous organists will play it during services, to everyone's delight. Below, the brave organist is Ann McCullough.
