Jeff Scofield on July 28, 2021:

The organ was dismantled in 1969 and moved to a hall adjacent to the auditorium, where it was cleaned and renovated; the Swell reeds were revoiced at the factory and additions were made; the organ was re-installed in new chambers. The console and relay electronics updated by R.A. Colby. Milnar Organ Company (1993) replaced the Great 8' Bombarde with a new 8' Trumpet and the Choir 8' Krumhorn with a new 8' Oboe. They also replaced the fabric screening with stamped metal.
