Thank You!

by Derek Nickels, Director if Music

Many thanks to the generous individuals, couples, and families that graciously donated to the restoration of our organ!  The work which began in June with the complete removal of our beloved Aeolian-Skinner organ has been finally completed.  The most noticeable changes are the shiny pipes, the restored console which includes lighting that had been relatively non-existent, and because the wind pressures have been restored to their original pressures, a much gentler sound that blends much better than it ever had before.  The reeds of the organ that imitate oboes and trumpets are much better regulated and sound in a more uniform manner.  Before the project, some would sound big and bright, while neighboring pipes would sound weak and dull. 

During the last week of September, the final tonal finishing touches will take place.  Mark your calendars now for the rededication recital on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.  Again, thank you for your support in making this long-overdue project actually become a reality.
