Paul R. Marchesano on January 05, 2022:

There were two minor alterations to that organ in 1970 which included replacing the Great 4' Flute with a new metal capped flute which blends as it should and the two top octaves of the Swell 16' Bourdon were new at the same time. Curiously, the organ never had a combination action except for a "blind" system that was factory wired. We will be adding a solid state multi-memory level system and new drawknob actions but intend to use the original drawknob heads if possible so there is no visible alteration to the 1936 console. All original wind switching will remain. -- Information from Chuck Gibson who maintains the organ
