Realize Your Dream

Our Mission

Building modern musical instruments for the Church today mandates a comprehensive understanding of the history of the literature, its composers and the evolution of the organ itself.

Our vision is focused on the organ effectively serving the musical and liturgical needs of each congregation for generations to come. Whether building a new organ or ensuring the longevity of your existing instrument, APOBA firms are at your service.

We encourage people to learn how to invest in an affordable, practical and functional pipe organ; One that will stand the test of time; Performance measured in centuries, not years.

 

The sound of the organ pipe distinguishes it from all other musical instruments. APOBA has set forth principles on the use of electronically generated sounds.
