Database Manager on July 29, 2010:

Identified through on-line information from Chad Boorsma -- The organ was originally built by M. P. Möller as their Opus 8807 in 1955. This work, done in conjunction with a sanctuary expansion, included: moving the organ to the opposite end of the room, adding ranks, revoicing, constructing new cases, and changing the console to solid state. Further work on the organ was done by Don Haan. He installed new key contacts because notes were not working and also repaired the bellows.
