Foley-Baker is proud to announce that First Presbyterian Church of Lynchburg, VA has awarded us the contract for a complete rebuilding of their 53 rank, 1951 Möller, Opus 8303. Besides a new console, work will include a complete updating of the chassis and a number of new/replacement stops. Work will be under the direction of tonal director Milovan Popovic, who will recast the organ’s tonal resources to achieve an updated, cohesive spec and sound. Special thanks to First Presbyterian's music director, Cory Whittier!
