Updated 2 years ago

There was a special rededication ceremony in Old Town Sunday.The Holy Family Catholic Church in Old Town acquired a 105-year-old organ from St. Mary’s Church in Orono.That church closed.Members of the church are happy to be preserving a piece of history and say it’s a musical treasure.The pipe organ will be joining the church’s electronic organ and piano.” A pipe organ is a traditional, classical church organ and it is a very majestic sound and it’s quite a different sound from the electronic organ. Although electronics can very much imitate the sound of a pipe organ. There’s nothing quite the same as the acoustic pipe organ itself.”The church plans to use the pipe organ for special occasions, like at Christmas, Easter and for weddings.
