Electronic Organ Time-lapse—Mormon Tabernacle Choir Tour

How many people does it take to put an electronic organ together? What does it look like? For the Choir’s 2015 tour, a custom electronic organ was purchased so the organists can have a transportable instrument that emulates the sounds of some of the world’s most popular organs. The sounds are chosen by touchscreen computers that act as the stops on a traditional pipe organ do. Having this custom organ will allow the organists to have a uniform sound in each location. The volume will be controlled by the same soundboard that controls the microphones in order to create optimal blending with the 300-plus Choir singers and 68 Orchestra members.

Watch this amazing time-lapse video to see the organ go from being unloaded from a truck in separate boxes to becoming a fully functional, tour-ready organ.
