Yarm School 2012
We installed our Regent Classic Digital Organ in Yarm school’s stunning Princess Alexandra Auditorium. The instrument was tailored according to the school’s requirements and we custom-built the Regent Classic in a Cavaille-Coll style console, which they were pleased to have, as this is found in only a few schools in the UK.
Built to the same standards as a conventional pipe organ, but occupying just a fraction of the space, the digital organ has 69 speaking stops across four manuals. This allows the accompaniment of any choral or orchestral work.
In September 2013 an inaugural concert was held for the Alexandra Auditorium. Yarm school was excited to have David Briggs, the world renowned American organist play our instrument.

I expect it is not often in a career that the opportunity arises to design an organ for a brand new 750-seat concert hall, but in late 2009 that was the challenge I was given when we began the construction of a new Performing Arts Centre at Yarm School.
After investigating a number of possible suppliers, it was decided that the contract should be awarded to Viscount Classical Organs as their revolutionary new physical modelling technology offers an excellent combination of quality, flexibility, value-for-money and sound. Also, as this exceptional new technology is further enhanced, we can easily benefit from future upgrades and improvements that will become available.
The instrument was finally installed in April this year, just in time for the formal Royal opening of our wonderful new facilities. Each time I play or listen to the instrument, it exceeds my expectations and the elegant and contemporary terraced console really compliments the architecture of the auditorium. The alternative voicing flexibility even allows me to teach the complete organ repertoire on authentic sound palates, and the instrument easily supports school assemblies when the auditorium is full.
The team at Viscount Organs have fully justified our selection of their instrument and we look forward to their continued support for years to come, as we benefit from additional work to further enhance the high quality of the sound.
