  • This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ.
    Identified by Richard Byrd, who has heard or played the organ.
    Originally installed in a large, rectangular case capable of being moved about the Wright Center concert hall stage. The console was on its own moveable platform. Around 1999, it was removed from case arrangement and installed house-right in a "swallow's nest" configuration. Console lives one level below pipework. (Database Manager. February 26, 2017)
