Saint Anthony's historic 1912 Casavant Brothers pipe organ!
American Guild of Organist
The Old Colony Organist Southeastern Massachusetts Chapter
Our chapter covers the 53 towns and cities south of Boston, north of Cape Cod and east of Rhode Island. It includes the cities of Brockton, Taunton, Attleboro, Fall River and New Bedford along with several small towns, many with historic pipe organs. The oldest continually active E & GG Hook pipe organ in the United States, an 1834 installation is in the Berkley Congregational Church. Our programs are held throughout the region and celebrate organs and organ music throughout the year.
St. Anthony's is the largest church building in Southeastern Massachusetts and its breathtaking interior with a multitude of stained glass windows, larger than life angels looking down from the heights, stunning murals, and exquisitely carved Stations of the Cross. A canopy of 5500 light bulbs is gradually illuminated as the program progresses until at the final chords, the massive sanctuary is bathed in light. It is a religious experience just to be in such a space.
