Shadyside Presbyterian Church is centrally located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s university district, just a few blocks away from the campuses of the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.  The church is situated on the corner of Amberson Avenue and Westminster Place, only one block off Fifth Avenue.  The church’s 1994 Reuter Organ (opus 2175), capable of playing the full range of organ literature, accompanies the choir and leads the congregation in worship.  As an American Classic instrument, it incorporates the German, French, Italian, and English schools of organ building to create an instrument of enormous versatility.  The 105-rank organ helps to uphold the highest standards of sacred music and carries that tradition vibrantly into the twenty-first century.
