Our Opus 27 (see Opus List) as conceived as a late-Romantic French organ. Since its completion in 1989, it has seen a number of mechanical revisions, but the tonal characteristics have remained true to their roots. In 2015, the organ was due for a thorough tuning and regulation. A new HVAC system had been installed in the church. The temperature in the organ chambers is now more consistent and the tuning needed to be corrected for the improved environment. Mark Miller, Tonal Director, and Ryan Luckey, Voicer, spent two weeks with this monumental instrument. Each rank was gone through pipe-by-pipe, with minor adjustments being made to optimize the speech and tone quality. A few pipe repairs and other mechanical adjustments were completed at this time as well.
