Dr. John Gerhardt Schaeffer (pictured right), former Reid organist and Augusta State University music professor, was a friend to the Augusta music and arts community. His contributions spanned almost 30 years and his influence continues. After Dr. Schaeffer's death in November 1996, the John Schaeffer Organ Concert Series fund was established. This series showcases the culmination of a dream come true, the building of one of Augusta’s finest pipe organs, the Reid Memorial Schantz pipe organ. While we are thankful for all who have contributed toward making the dream of a new instrument and a concert series come true, we acknowledge God, creator and author of all things seen and not seeen, to be the source of these blessings. To God be praise and glory.
