Step #1: Organ Removal
This step involved removing most of the pipes, the keyboards, the pedal board, and the wind system from the existing organ.
Step #3: Providing Clean Air
To keep the organ from getting dirty as it has in the past over time, a "clean room" was created for the blower.
Step #2: Work at Parsons Organ
Much of the cleaning and maintenance on the pipes was done at Parsons Pipe Organ Builders. We were able to take a tour during July to see work on our organ and others.
Step #4: Organ Reinstallation
First, all the parts that were removed had to be reinstalled. Then each key and tracker (connecting wood dowels) had to be adjusted. Finally, each pipe had to be tuned and voiced (adjusting the tone and the volume.)
