The Organ of St. Mark

The first pipe organ of Saint Mark Lutheran church was a 1913 Emmons Howard tracker instrument, originally built for the First Presbyterian church in Salem. The organ builder Balcom and Vaughn made substantial changes to the organ, enlarging it to three manuals in 1951. In 1981, the pipe organ was replaced with a new pipe organ of American Classic design by the Schantz Organ Company. The pipe organ was a large two manual instrument of 38-ranks. In 1999 the Schantz Organ Company completed a significant enlargement project, including re-voicing the Great division, a new 3-manual console, Choir and Antiphonal divisions, with a total of 57-ranks. In 2009, organ builder Lanny Hochhalter was commissioned to design and install the Herald Trumpet set of pipes, to be included in the Antiphonal division on the gallery rail. The pipe organ is now 58-ranks/5 divisions.
