Database Manager on February 22, 2013:

Updated through online information from Robin Nicholls. -- I am choir director in another parish. Studied organ as an undergraduate with prof who was also an organ builder, so generally familiar. Church of the Epiphany has a very nice music program (anchored by this wonderful organ) so I visit from time to time. Oak Park is a suburb of Agoura Hills. Instrument is currently in full use and looks and sounds beautiful.
