  • Note from Organ Database Builders editor Charles Eberline, November 19, 2017. —

    James Brzezinski studied organ, voice, choral conducting, and music education at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey. He apprenticed with organbuilders in Wallington, New Jersey, and Connecticut, moved to California to work on the organ at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, and then accepted a position with an organbuilder in Lakeland, Florida. For several years he operated his own business, making pipes for other organbuilders. After he closed his shop, he worked for a citrus-processing company. Feeling a call to the priesthood, he earned bachelor of business administration and master of divinity degrees and was ordained deacon in 2012 and priest in 2013. He served at several churches before accepting a position as the rector of the Episcopal Church of St. Anne in Morrison, Illinois, beginning on July 1, 2017.

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.
