Database Manager on August 29, 2012:

Identified through online information from Matt Gerhard. -- Rebuild of existing Austin Organ. The console was rebuilt by Reynolds Associates, Inc. of Marion, Indiana. The original Austin combination action was replaced by a multilevel, digital system. New stop keys were installed, which included replacing the prepared for Antiphonal stops and other changes. The 16' Bombarde was extended to 32' digitally, a 32' Bourdon Resultant was added as well as an Oboe 8 to the swell. (I took organ lessons on this organ from 2000-2004. I last played it in 2011.)
