Be an Organ DonorHelp save St Andrew’s heritage organ
St Andrew’s on The Terrace is restoring its pipe organ.
George Croft and Sons of Auckland built the organ in 1962. The people of St Andrew’s regard the organ as a taonga (treasure) of which we are the kaitiaki (guardians). The pipe organ features in concerts and recitals, Sunday Gatherings, weddings and funerals.
The organ restoration is the last step in the ‘Saving St Andrew’s’ project to refurbish the church and hall, and build new offices and meeting rooms. St Andrew’s Centre was opened in 2014 as a result of this work.
St Andrew’s is one of the leading music venues in the city and many musicians and music teachers use the church and the centre extensively. The refurbished organ will match the church’s excellent acoustic, beautiful interior and air of serenity.
We need to raise at least $450,000 to restore the organ so that St Andrew’s on The Terrace can continue to enhance music in the city for many more years.
Help save St Andrew’s heritage organ: choose a pipe
We have sorted the organ’s 1,029 pipes into groups that reflect their tonal character: dulciana, swell, flute, chorus and reed. You can choose to sponsor any one pipe, a family of four pipes (swell, flute, chorus and reed) or a show pipe i.e. one of the large pipes that you can see when you look up at the organ. There are only 67 show pipes. If you sponsor a show pipe you will receive a schematic diagram identifying your pipe. All sponsors will receive a certificate and a pipe ‘identity number’. Names of sponsors will be recorded in a display board/book.
