Jeff Scofield on February 10, 2021:

In 1992, the organ was taken completely apart for a thorough cleaning, and a new case was built complementing the chapel’s traditional look. In 2004, the organ was arduously cleaned again, and many improvements were made, including a new console and pedal board.
