           Schantz   Contract #2302   2010
           This contract involves the cleaning, pipe restoration/
           rebuilding and tonal regulation of portions (Great, 
           Positive, Bombarde and Pedal) of Æolian-Skinner 
           Op. 1174. This instrument suffered the collapse of the 
           chamber (plaster-on-lathe) ceiling.  In cases where 
           existing pipework is damaged beyond repair, replica 
           pipework will be fabricated utilizing Æolian-Skinner 
           pipe metal composition, construction and marking 
           techniques. Voicing techniques and methodology applied 
           to the Indianapolis (A-S Op. 1490) and Fort Wayne 
          (Op. 1171-B) projects should be utilized in this 
           instance. The remainder of the organ (Swell, Choir and 
           Gallery) and its console remain on site.
