MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS

Ladue Chapel is blessed to have the resources of several musical instrument which are used daily in rehearsal, teaching and worship.

Our new organ, Schoenstein & Co.’s Opus 167, was first used for worship on October 25, 2015 and dedicated on March 6, 2016 in recital by Scott Dettra. The organ was featured on the cover of the January 2016 edition of The American Organist, the journal of the American Guild of Organists.

The Möller Pipe Organ located in Woods Chapel contains 6 ranks of pipes and was installed in 1957.

The sanctuary piano is a Baldwin grand, and we have other pianos in the Choir Room, Fireside Room, and Fellowship Hall.

The one-manual, two-stop harpsichord was crafted by local builder Peter Tkach.

Ladue Chapel is fortunate to have 6 ½ octaves of Schulmerich handbells, including the C2 (nicknamed “Charlie”) which weighs over 16 pounds. Additionally we have a 3-octave set of Whitechapel handbells and 4 ½ octaves of handchime instruments.

We also have a full range of Orff-Schulwerk percussion instruments (xylophones, metallophones and glockenspiels), two Yamaha pedal timpani, and an amazing assortment of non-tuned percussion instruments.
