This organ has been rewired with new combination action and proposed specification enhanced according to original aeolian skinner specifications - organ has been raised out of pit and is now on same level as choir loft.

    organ is maintained by SDG Pipe Organs of Millersville, PA. Proposed specification developed in conjunction with Jonathan Ambrosino. With the exception of 4 discreet digital readouts in the nameboard, all controls are mounted in a drawer under the right jamb. (Database Manager. December 28, 2015)
