RIEGER ON THE REEF:  NEW ORGAN

A magnificent new custom-made Reiger organ was installed at the beginning of this year after many years of planning.  The donors, Nicky and Strilli Oppenheimer generously made this instrument available, not only to enrich and enhance our worship, but to function as a performance instrument for international and local recitalists.  We have since been privileged to host a number of the world’s top organists at full-house performances and we are also gla to host monthly recitals before evensong of our best local organists.
