Database Manager on September 26, 2014:

Identified through online information from Eugene H. Blackstone. -- Relocated and much enlarged existing organ, identified by Dr. Eugene Blackstone.

  • In 1988 the Great, Swell, Baroque, and Pedal divisions were completed.
  • In 1995 the Antiphonal and Echo were added.
  • In 2014 the Solo and second Pedal divisions were completed.
All work was done under the direction of John Hendriksen, with pipework by Tom Anderson, all intended to be a 21st century embodyment of the Aeolian-Skinner concepts, voicing, and tonal finishing. Pedal and reeds pneumatic; upperwork electric.
