Database Manager on July 04, 2014:

The organ was originally a 3-rank Wicks from a Lutheran Church in Pennsylvania. In 1996, it was completely redone by Hagerstown Organ Company for installation in a private residence. The reed stop was redone by Trivo at this time. Lauck further redid the organ in preparation for its installation at Aquinas in 2012. In 2013, a Schantz console was installed by Lauck (console was originally from Parkland Presbyterian Church in Flint, Michigan, and was owned and stored in a barn most recently by Fenton UMC in Fenton, Michigan). The organ is in memory of Genevieve Meitz.
