In order to demonstrate our commitment to ongoing education and as a way to keep abreast of the steady influx of new products and the changing trends in music and church liturgy, we maintain working relationships with our contemporaries in all aspects of the trade. This is paramount to the future of the pipe organ and our craft.
At Parsons we believe that the future of the industry hinges on education. As such, we sponsor numerous events, including: open house receptions for the general public; seminars including the American Guild of Organist (AGO) sponsored Pipe Organ Encounters (POE) program; and educational programs in area schools demonstrating a full scale sectional model organ as shown in the picture.
We maintain memberships in Associated Pipe Organ Builders of America (APOBA), International Society of Organbuilders (ISO), Organ Historical Society (OHS). In addition, key members of our staff belong to the American Guild of Organists (AGO) and American Institute of Organbuilders (AIO)
Our Philosophy is simple. We design the very finest church pipe organs to inspire worship. We voice them to effectively render the literature of the organ, and we build them to last for generations. Our new instruments combine the traditions of high quality organbuilding with the versatility of the new technology.
We are committed to helping each client determine goals and develop a plan best suited to their needs. Organbuilding is a labor of love that, for us, provides a purpose and means to express ourselves as artisans.
“It is by God’s grace alone that we are blessed with the knowledge and abilities to build such things of beauty; that musicians are gifted to make them sing; and that music can minister in so many ways. As these instruments lead us in song, may our worship be an offering to Jesus Christ to whom we give all the glory for what we are able to accomplish through Him.”
