This is a promotional spot on the St. Philips Moravian Church at Old Salem in Winston Salem North Carolina. St. Philips is the oldest standing African American church in North Carolina.
Constructed 1861 with 1890 addition, restored 2004. Historic St. Philips Church is the oldest African American church still standing in the state of North Carolina and one of the earliest in the entire country. Built for the African American congregation, the church matched most of the other churches in the area built at the same time with the large brick, Greek Revival style.
The church was expanded in 1890 with the need to add more classroom space downstairs and above in the balcony. The church extended out into the graveyard, which later caused structural issues on the front walls.
The congregation moved out of the building in the 1952, and the church sat vacant until restored for use as part of Old Salem Museums & Gardens tours. The steeple, which had been removed in the 1920s was part of the exterior restoration. The original pews and other details are back in place inside the building.
Hello this is Episode 15 of Pipe Organs of SC
I was able to play two instruments during a mini vacation in Charleston. I would love to do more, so if any of you can put me in contact with some organists that would be great.

Subscribe to the Channel. Please note due to a failure of a piece of equipment that has since been replaced. This video does not have the typically great audio of our content. I almost did not want to upload it. However I took a hit and purchased what I hope is a nicer piece of equipment.
Thanks to St. Philip’s church and Joe Hethcox for hosting us quite on the fly.
This video was not initially scheduled but thankfully I had most of my gear working, note the absence of the tripod during the chapel organ visit
