    Visit The Fish – Come Experience the Sights and Sounds

    Architect Wallace K. Harrison asked “have you ever thought what it would be like to live inside a giant sapphire?”  With more than 20,000 pieces of glass in 86 hues, the dalle de verre of the First Presbyterian Church in Stamford achieves his goal of creating a building with “soaring space and jeweled light”.  

    The acoustics of the sanctuary drove the form of the building, which resembles a fish, causing this building to be nicknamed The Fish Church.  The superior acoustics will be demonstrated by the Minister of Music who will be on hand for the tours.

    Docent–led tours will introduce the visitors to the unique sanctuary, the magnificent Visser Rowland organ and the 56 bell carillon.

    At 1:00 p.m., a panel of experts moderated by Kyle May, principal at Abrahams May Architects and Editor in Chief of CLOG, will discuss the architectural, structural and religious significance of The Fish Church.  Following the presentations and roundtable discussion there will be time for the audience to ask the panel questions about the church.
