Updated through online information from Ulysses Squitieri. -- The new Walker Technical combination action was installed in 2010.
In October 2007 a contract was signed with R.A. Colby Organ Company of Johnson City, Tenn., to provide a new console. Prior to signing the contract for the new console, several surveys were made of the mechanical condition of the entire instrument as well as a rough plan and schedule for its continued refurbishment. This plan included a provision in the new console not only for state-of-the-art combination action, but also for the addition of digital voices. The Walker Technical Company of Zionsville, Pa., installed these additions, which have greatly augmented the color palette of our pipe organ and will enable us to take an incremental and economically-efficient approach to refurbishing the rest of the pipe work, wind chests, etc., while having a completely serviceable instrument available during that process. They also make it possible to have use of a full "organâ€? during the summer (and on cold winter days) when keeping the reeds in tune is difficult and costly. The new console was first played on Pentecost in 2010. (church website)
