THE 1929 CASAVANT ORGAN - HOLLYWOOD CAMPUS

Casavant Frères - Quebec, Canada- 
The company that built the Hollywood United Methodist Church organ

The company that built Hollywood United Methodist Church's pipe organ was "Casavant Frères", a firm out of Quebec, Canada. The firm was founded in 1879 by two brothers, Claver and Samuel Casavant. Upon their installation of a four-manual organ of 82 stops in 1891 for the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal, the firm gained international acclaim. Throughout their career, the brothers received increasing recognition for their work as Casavant organs were installed in leading colleges, universities and conservatories around the globe. In 1930 (just one year after our organ was installed), the Casavant brothers won the Grand Pize at the International Exhibition held in Antwerp, Belgium.
 
To date, the Casavant Frères firm has built nearly 4,000 organs and is one of only a handful of pipe organ builders left! While the original Casavant organ here at HUMC has been substantially enhanced, the foundational elements of our Casavant remain. Our instrument has a prominent lineage which needs to be preserved and joyously experienced. 
 

 Look at the expansion from the original specs in 1929 to the most updated specs in 2015
