Casavant Freres Organ: New Pipe Organ Arrives at Third Church!

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

OPUS 3924 traveled from the Casavant Freres workshop in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, and arrived at the church on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

Over the coming weeks the pipes, console and thousands of parts will be installed, followed by “voicing” the instrument, which will ensure a perfect balance of sound.  We look forward to extraordinary music for our services in the next few weeks.

The new organ will also be featured at our annual Christmas Concert on Sunday, Dec. 2.  We invite the entire community to attend and experience the beauty of the new organ.

You can view photos of the organ and its manufacturing and installation process below and on the bulletin board in the lobby of the church.

Click here for more on donating to the fundraising campaign. Your generosity will help fund the organ and support ongoing care and maintenance. Gifts of any amount help toward the goal and will be acknowledged at the Christmas concert on Dec. 2.

Casavant Freres Organ: Putting on the Finishing Touches in Quebec

Friday, August 10th, 2018
Here’s a photo slideshow of what the new Casavant Freres Opus 3924 organ looked like as finishing touches were being made at the factory in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, in mid-July. A group of members from Third Church and our Musical Director and Organist, Chris Crook, and Bradley Reznicek, were invited to their workshop to see and hear the finished organ and meet the craftsmen who built it.
All of the 2,530 pipes – from the 1.5 inch ones all the way to the 20 foot pipes – along with the other parts of the organ will be disassembled, individually wrapped, labeled and placed in shipping trays and containers over the next several weeks. Everything will be loaded into one truck for its 1,800 mile journey to Dallas with an expected arrival on Sept. 11.
It will take several weeks for the installation crew from Casavant to unload, reassemble and voice the organ. We look forward to welcoming them all to Dallas and to our church.

We have seen and heard Opus 3924!

Jeff Gusky is an emergency physician and National Geographic photographer. His life as an explorer and artist began in December, 1995 when on a hunch, he found an obscure remnant of a Nazi concentration camp. Since that day, he’s been on a quest to understand why terrorism continues and where hope lies in a time of terror.

Jeff believes we face a Human Emergency caused by an invisible environmental crisis of scale: unhealthy compromises we choose to make under the influence of the highly addictive, technology-driven, fast paced environments in which most of us now live. Modern life cuts us off from nature, human nature and each other. The inhuman scale of modern life confuses our moral compass, our self-protective instincts and our will to distinguish what’s real from what’s fake.

Jeff believes that if we can talk about how the inhuman scale of modern life cuts us off from our moral core, we are much less vulnerable to terrorism. His mission is to help people recover their moral compass by helping them restore a human scale to their lives. His goal is to inspire belief in a future where we find hope in the human decency and courage of ordinary people and safety in seeing human nature for what it is…permanently imperfect…with the potential to be immensely good and immensely evil. By restoring a human scale to our busy modern lives we can recover healthy self-protective instincts that will help keep us safe in a time of terror. Jeff is also a TV host & producer, author of three books and a professional speaker.
