Database Manager on March 05, 2011:

Identified through online information from Fr. Aaron Orear. -- I last heard the organ in late September of 2010, and it sounded just grand! It is most definitely in good condition and regular use. The console is not fixed. Though it rarely moves, it is pulled out for organ recitals. When Christopher Herrick performed at All Saints, in 2002, the console was placed in the crossing. Also, the last work done was by John Nolte. From the ASC web site..."The Pepper-Graves Memorial Cathedral Organ was dedicated at Evensong on Trinity Sunday, June 10, 2001, by the Bishop of Milwaukee. Since then, several generous gifts have made possible the installation of six more ranks of pipes to complete the organ. John Nolte and Sons Organ Company, Milwaukee, Wisconsin performed the installation."
