Database Manager on April 05, 2010:

Identified through online information from Chad Boorsma. -- The organ was built for the congregation's new sanctuary, which has excellent acoustics (4 seconds reverberation). It was dedicated on October 12, 2003, in a service of Evensong, followed by a recital with Dale Caldwell at the console. The majority of the pipes are in a mahogany case at the front of the sanctuary, but ten ranks are in an antiphonal case at the rear of the room.
