The organ was installed in Christ Church (Episcopal) in the first months of 2007 by Rob Kerner and students in the "Organ Design and Maintenance� class. It served as the main service instrument there while the Craighead-Saunders organ was being installed. Upon completion of the Craighead-Saunders organ, the Hook & Hastings was moved to St. Mary-s Catholic Church in Rochester, and inaugurated on Sunday, April 18, 2010.
