From the parish website: "In March of 1985, a contract was signed with Cannarsa Organs for the construction of a 51-rank, four-manual pipe organ, at that time the largest instrument in Montgomery County. The installation was completed in the fall of 1987, and was celebrated by a year-long festival which included special services and an organ recital series.
In December 2000, an overwhelmingly successful campaign was launched to fund an extensive renovation of the organ. Improvements included refurbishment of the console and a complete update of the keying system which provided for an expanded stop list and MIDI capability, as well as the addition of a number of new digital voices from the Walker Technical Company. More digital voices were added in 2007. The resulting instrument is one of the finest in the Washington, DC area, and will celebrate its 30th anniversary in October 2017."
This entry represents the first installation of a new organ. Identified through online information from Adam Graham, and from the parish website.
