  • Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- Housed in a large, multi-sectional off-white case with cranberry trim. (Database Manager. October 11, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from T. Daniel Hancock. -- Damaged by water from a "faulty fire sprinkler" on May 23, 2012. The instrument is insured, and "damage is being assessed by technician Christian Lentz" and "is expected to be out of commission for an extended period of time. (Database Manager. August 7, 2012)
  • Updated through online information from Dorothy Young Riess. -- The organ suffered extensive damage in May 2012 from a faulty sprinkler and much of it was returned to Von Beckerath in Germany for rebuild. The work was complete summer of 2013 and the first concert took place on 2013, Oct 11. A new console decreased the work of playing a tracker and all facade pipes were hand-polished. In fact, now it is better than before. (Database Manager. October 23, 2013)
