Rodgers Instruments is pleased to announce the new installation of a stunning Rodgers 3 manual Artist Series Organ at Hong Kong Shamshuipo Tsung Tsin Church, established in 1897. Located on Tai Po Road, the beautiful church was built on top of a hill. The congregation wanted an instrument that offered the finest pipe organ sound to serve its worship requirements. Rockson Organ Service Company, Rodgers representative for Hong Kong, was excited to guide this pristine church to find the perfect sound and fit for their majestic location.
The Rodgers Artist Series 599 is indeed a perfect choice for them. The Hong Kong Shamshuipo Tsung Tsin Church is excited with both the flexibility of the instrument, including the extensive library of organ and orchestral sounds that can be played from any division of the organ, as well as its rich sound qualities. The Artist Series 599’s 282 total voices are derived from Rodgers high-resolution sampling process which employs up to 8 microphones to record the authentic sound from legendary pipe organs around the world.

Dan Miller recently traveled over 22,000 miles to several beautiful Australian cities to celebrate Rodgers organ installations. The tour was expertly organized and hosted by Kerry Morenos, Rodgers representative with Principal Organs, Australia. All the events were enthusiastically welcomed and received positive and grateful comments. Highlights of the concert tour included playing the newly installed Rodgers organ for St Patrick’s Catholic Church’s Sunday Mass, followed by true Mackay hospitality with a morning tea, a workshop with music students from St Joseph’s Cathedral College, and a Brilliant concert at St Mary's Cathedral, Hyde Park, Sydney.
Australia is nearly the size of USA. Dan flew daily to cities that were 750 to over 1,000 miles apart.
Dan says: “The Australian summer heat and high humidity was a striking contrast to USA’s winter, and the churches were not air-conditioned. But that didn’t deter from the enjoyment of meeting wonderful people, seeing some Australian sites, tasting delicious food, and above all, sharing the beautiful sounds and increasing people’s enthusiasm for their Rodgers organs!”
