Updated through online information from Pete van Waardhuizen. -- In June of 2013 the town of High River was flooded and also the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church had a foot and a half of water in the sanctuary. Pearce Piano Service removed the organ to their shop and commenced to rebuild. The bellows and pedal chest were rebuilt as these were completely underwater. The case and the front pipes were refinished and a new motor installed. The placement of the organ was changed with the pipes facing the front of the church instead of toward the side. The organ was tuned and voiced on 3" of wind.We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on April 09, 2020.
Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The 5-sectional facade contains 25 pipes arranged: 3-7-5-7-3. The pipes were originally stencilled but have since been painted gold. The organ was originally built for St. Anne's RC in Seattle, Washington. In 1963, after St. Anne's built a new church, the organ was moved to Redeemer Lutheran Church in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada by D. Stuart Kennedy. Similarly, Redeemer Lutheran later built a new church, and the Hinners was again relocated. It was donated by Redeemer to Good Shepherd Lutheran in High River, Alberta, Canada. And again, it was moved by D. Stuart Kennedy. At the time of its move, it was the only pipe organ in High River. It was dedicated in worship and music on May 25, 1997 at 7:00 p.m. On June 7, 1998, the organ was given Historic Designation by the Organ Historical Society and cited as being worthy of preservation.We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on April 09, 2020.
