Database Manager on May 14, 2015:

Altered and relocated existing organ. Identified by James R. Stettner, using information found in Organ Dedication program - March 27, 2014.
-- The Schlicker was originally built for St. John's College in Winfield, Kansas. The college closed in 1986, and in 1987 the organ was relocated and installed by Schlicker in Schroeder Performance Hall of Concordia University in Austin, Texas.
When Concordia relocated to a new campus in North Austin, and without a suitable facility for the organ available, it was placed in climate-controlled storage for several years. The university finally decided to make the organ available so it could continue to serve.
It was installed at Grace Episcopal by C. Bobsin Organs, controlled by a used 4-manual Kegg console from First United Methodist Church in Cleveland, Ohio, and 63 Walker digital ranks added.
