Rodgers 945 Concert Organ
Manufacturer: Rodgers Instrument Corporation Year Built: 1991
Model: 945  

This is the first model year of Rodgers' digital organs, and it is the top of the line for that model year. It was purchased through a combination of a grant from Deutsch Research Laboratories (my father's consulting company, now defunct) and my own money. It replaced an old analog Rodgers 32B that I had since the age of 12. I sold the 32B to Valley Beth Shalom to use as an organ for their auxiliary services. The 945 is my main practice instrument. The touchscreen computer monitor on the right side is used to control Hauptwerk organ samples that add to the many excellent built-in samples and also allow me to play authentic-sounding theater organ.
