Results of the Organ Pipe Competition 2016

Results of the Organ Pipe Competition 2016

Manchester Cathedral is in the process of installing a new organ which will be at the heart of the building and support the worship and musical life of the Cathedral, now and for the future. The “Paint a Pipe” project was launched by Manchester Cathedral Development Project in 2015 to provide educational opportunities for Greater Manchester schools to learn about the organ and discover more about Manchester Cathedral itself. Pipes from the decommissioned organ (which had C19th origins and was restored after extensive WW2 damage) were collected by schools in September. Since then, pupils from 24 schools have been decorating pipes on the theme of “Musical Manchester”.
