Database Manager on August 21, 2013:

Originally built in 1994 for Bethany Lutheran Church in Tulsa, Okla. After Bethany closed their doors in August 2011, the organ was reclaimed by Paul Fritts, who then transported and installed the instrument in Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. The church has secured a long-term lease on the organ, with plans to commission a larger Fritts instrument in the future.
