Notes

  • Identified through online information from Stephen Hall. -- Organ replaced 1971 Robert Sipe/Aeolian-Skinner Opus 1525, installed 1970 as a 'temporary' instrument. The casework "overall design is patterned after two Hinsz organs in Holland, with faux grained casework and baroque carvings to fill out the undulating façade of this instrument." (Database Manager. February 26, 2012)
  • Dedicated at 11:15 service on Sunday, April 18, 2010; Joel Martinson, Director of Music. Same day at 3pm and 7pm, recitals by James David Christie. (Database Manager. September 15, 2015)
