  • From the OHS Database Builders Listing editor, November 26, 2016. —

    The website of Presbyterian Church of Memphis, Tennessee gives a description of their organ, Wicks Opus 6085, including its revision in 2002. It lists Robert Capra as being part of the team that worked on the organ for that revision, but does not give his title, although the original 1987 installation lists him as regional sales manager and installer.
