Instruments at First United Methodist Church

 

From the Consecration of this building in 1868, there has been a Pipe Organ heard every week in this magnificent space.  When the present church was consecrated in 1868, the Pipe Organ was moved from the previous building and installed in the balcony (evidence of balcony can be seen by the rear sconces where you can see the outline of the original beams).  As of this date, no photographic image of what the organ and balcony would have looked like exist.  

 

The church is home to the largest pipe organ in the City of Rochester NH, by Faucher Organ Co. of Biddeford ME.  

 

The church is also home to a 2001, Steinway - 7 foot Grand Piano.      

The church has 4 Octaves of Schulmerich Hand-bells, and 5 Octaves of Shulmerich Hand-chimes.
