From the first of january 2017 the talented musician Marco den Toom will be the new organist at the Van den Heuvel organ of the Nieuwe Kerk at Katwijk aan Zee.
In January 2013 the 3-manual Van den Heuvel organ (III/P, 25 stops, 1995) was dismantled, packed and local stored by the builders. The reason for dismantling was the realization of a complete new conservatory with concert hall accommodations.
In May and June 2016 the Van den Heuvel assembling team installed the organ in the magnificent new concert hall. This multi-purpose hall features an organ, choral and orchestral stage. The acoustics in the hall are adjustable to specific desired and musical performances.
The Dutch Reformed Bethel church in Lunteren (NL) was designed by the well known architect A.K. Nes. 1972. The Dutch organ builders Fama & Raadgever designed and built the new pipe organ. At delivery, four stops were prepared, and were installed a few years later. In 2006, the church building was taken over by the Hersteld Hervormde Kerk and within a few years the seating capacity became too limited. In 2016 a new church will be built (completion is expected around Spring 2017) with approximately 1.200 seats. The current pipe organ is naturally too small for this large building so the church wardens decided to ask Van den Heuvel-Organ builders (www.vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl) to find a new home for this lovely organ and to take responsibility for the dismantling and re-installation.
