Roman Lizak on July 16, 2020:

Visited the organ today (16 July, 2020) In useable condition, needs to be tuned Instrument has been tuned in the past and needs to be done more frequently as the sanctuary has no air conditioning.

Flue pipework is mostly un-nicked causing a chiff in the tone of the pipes. All of the pipes (Flues and Reeds) are in good condition.

The chests are in good condition as well. Electro-mechanical chests.
