Database Manager on August 05, 2008:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is still in its formative stages. The church acquired a used 2/9 Bernard Mudler and refurbished and installed that. They were considering augmenting the Mudler, but decided to make a second, separate organ. It will be in the style of a Silbermann, tonally, and is being nick-named "Son of Silbermann." The project is being headed by parishioners Stan Goddard and Harry Takata, with guidance by Clinton B. Meadway of Monroe, WA. The console was acquired from St. Aidan's on Camano Island, and is from the 1936 Kimball (Op. 7169) originally built for the Scottish Rite Temple in Seattle. Pipes and chests are from various sources around the country. The console will be on the main floor with the pipes in the right side gallery.
