Rebuild and expansion of 1957, 34-rank Wicks organ, including new console & electrical system. The original Swell division, complete with Willis-style reeds, has been kept largely intact. Other vintage pipe ranks from Skinner, Kimball, and Austin were integrated into the tonal design. The balance of the organ has undergone major tonal revisions, including new principal choruses on all divisions, and the addition of a Solo division.
