Database Manager on February 26, 2012:

Identified through online information from Oliver J. Finch. -- Renovation/enlargement of existing Möller organ. The console upgrade included a Peterson ICS 4000 that controls the console functions. The organist now has record/playback, MIDI capabilities, transposer, piston sequencer capabilities. The project included all new key and pedal contacts. The organ will be revoiced in the second phase of the upgrade allowing it to speak at its best.
