The renovation improvements of the project center around a new chancel and choir loft that is highlighted by a new pipe organ. The scope includes aesthetic, acoustic and functional updates to the Sanctuary and Chancel, Sacristy, Apse, Transept, Welcome Center, and Historic Lobby. It also includes the addition of a new ADA lift to the top choir platform, new sanctuary lighting, and restoration of the heart pine wood floors. While focusing on the new chancel and choir configuration, the redesign includes an improved existing pulpit, marble floors, white oak millwork, bronze railings, and a piano lift that can be utilized for the relocation of the chancel furnishings to create a venue for recitals, performances, and other events.
