Database Manager on August 07, 2012:

Updated through online information from Scott Nelson. -- The Choir division was releathered about 8 years ago when water leaked through the roof of the chamber and soaked the Choir chest. Console leather for the switching and coupling is starting to need attention as are certain chest notes in the Great, Swell and Pedal. The organ could use cleaning. Organ for the use in cahpel services is not a priority as it once was. They use piano quite a bit. I was there about a year ago to tune the organ for a wedding. When I called to see about tuning for graduation this year, 2012, I was told the tuning was ok.
