PIPE ORGANS OF UTAH

While Utah probably has more church buildings per capita than any other state in the Intermountain West region of the United States, it has relatively few significant pipe organs. There are two reasons for this phenomenon:

  1. A large percentage of church buildings in Utah utilize pipeless electronic instruments, and
  2. Those church buildings which do have pipe organs generally have small instruments of nine or fewer ranks.
Consequently, the following listing is not by any means exhaustive, but includes instruments with which the author is familiar and which he feels to be noteworthy due to quality, uniqueness, or size. Those wishing to make additions or corrections to this list are encouraged to do so by contacting the author.

(NOTE: This page is still under construction. Eventually each organ listed will have a hyperlink to a specification, photo, and other websites related to the instrument. Meanwhile, each entry lists builder, number of manuals and ranks, key action, and date of completion.)
