    Moises M. Carrasco III was born in San Antonio, Texas, on September 14, 1961. He graduated from High Point High School in Beltsville, Maryland, and attended the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland.

    He began his working career at Lewis & Hitchcock in 1980 as an organ builder. In 1983 he moved to his native state of Texas and worked in many capacities for the Schudi Organ Co. in Dallas, Texas, from 1983 to 1986. While doing an installation for Schudi in Hamilton, Massachusetts, in 1986, he decided that he wanted to stay in the area. He worked for the Noack Organ Co., George Bozeman, and the Andover Organ Co. until 1998. At age 40 he made a complete career change and went to work for Bell Atlantic Yellow Pages in the information technology (IT) department. Although he left organ building, he continued musical activities with his beloved tuba. He played with various orchestras in the area, such as the Phillips Andover Academy Orchestras, the Merrimack Valley Philharmonic, and the Reading Symphony, as well as freelancing when called on. He died on January 24, 2010, after a two-year battle with leukemia.

Some of our entries are names that might never appear on a nameplate or nameboard.
On the other hand, there are both individuals and firms who are responsible for conserving historic organs through location, or preserving the usefulness of pipe organs through rebuilding or making modifications to existing instruments. In these cases, we are proud to acknowledge their contributions to the ongoing artistic tradition of the pipe organ in America through individual entries in our online database.
