Notes

  • New console for the existing organ. Identified by Stephen Studnicka, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- In 1991 under the supervision of Danny Keller, a contract was signed with the Range Organ Company in Mesquite, TX for a new console with 8 levels of memory, 65 draw stop knobs, and a complete capture and piston system at the cost of $49,500. Danny designed the placement of the draw knobs. The contract ensured the console matched the architecture of the sanctuary. (Database Manager. August 8, 2014)
