Vana Andres Church (Toronto) - Visit To Casavant Frères Ltée

Releathering valves

Thank you

 

On Friday, September 26, 2014 a delegation of 5 people (Rev. Kalle Kadakas, organists Marta Kivik & Ene Salumäe, cameraman Alex Kink along with Illar Tenno, from Old St. Andrew's Evangelical Lutheran Church (Vana Andres), Toronto, paid a visit to Casavant Frères, Ltée., the Quebec builder of their 1915, Opus 618 pipe-organ.

The group was joined by Rev. Tuuli Raamat and Mark Altosaar from Montreal. Casavant Vice-President, Simon Couture, greeted everyone and showed them around the factory where they were treated to several demonstrations of organ building techniques. He also presented copies of the organ plans and the original contract to the church. Since this Estonian church is closing at the end of October this year, the visit was filmed with the intention of producing a documentary video featuring the church, the congregation and the pipe-organ.

It is interesting to note that Rev. Karl Raudsepp, later Bishop Raudsepp, was the founder of this Toronto Estonian church, along with several other Estonian churches across Canada, during the post WWII years of Estonian immigration to Canada. This visit was arranged by the Canadian pipe-organ historian and restoration specialist, Karl J. Raudsepp.
