anthony meloni on August 21, 2020:

This organ was removed from its original location in Holyoke, MA by the Organ clearing House. It was moved to Yonkers, NY in 2010, and installed by Meloni & Farrier Organbuilders.

The chests required partial releathering due to some water damage, about 150 pouches. The console was upgraded to a Peterson ICS 4000.

The framework and positioning of the windchests had to be completely modified to fit the new space.

The organ is very successful in the new space at St. John the Baptist RC Church, Yonkers, NY.
