Database Manager on February 15, 2019:

Layout description as shown on the symphony's website: The organ is in a shallow chamber above the stage in the center. The mechanical action console is on the left side of the case with the Positif to the right of it. The Grande Orgue is above the console and Positif with the most of the Grande Choeur enclosed behind it. The high pressure reeds of the Grande Choeur are in a separate enclosure to the right of the Recit enclosure, both are above the main enclosure for the Grande Choeur. The Pedal is divided on either side of the case, but not within the case.

There is a second console which is moveable. It controls the trackers using electric pull downs. The primary (tracker action) console also had electrical key actions to control the floating high-pressure reed sections.
