The Allen Elite(TM) program merges the resources and expertise of Allen Organs and the world's finest organ designers. Each Elite organ will be a numbered opus intended to embody well-articulated musical ideals, uncompromised excellence, and exceptional beauty. The first Elite instrument, Opus I, is a three-manual, sixty-stop instrument designed by Randy Miller, Allen's Vice President of Product Development.
