Database Manager on August 08, 2008:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the moving, rebuilding, and reinstallation of the church's existing 1969 Schlicker. A new case was built by Sipe. It is 7-sectional. This was the first phase. Subsequent phases included new mixtures for each manual, a new Sw. 16- Basson and 8- Hautbois, a new Gt. Trompete and 8- Principal, the en chamade Trompeta Real, and the 32- Kontra Pasaune extension in the Pedal. Subsequent to these, the 8- Pedal Trompete extension, the 32- Subbass (acoustic), and an 8-level solid state combination action were also added. The most recent addition, the Swell 8- Tompette and 4- Clarion extension, was installed in June 1994. Source: church website.
