The expected date of installation of our new organ console has been pushed back from late February to April, 2015. We just became aware of this change on Monday, January 26.
The reasons for the change include delays from secondary suppliers, longer than expected construction time for the console shell, and some decision making on our end regarding the optimal substitute instrument for when the organ pipes are removed for restoration.
Once the new console is delivered, the plan is still to hook it up to the existing pipes and remove the electronic organ currently in use. We can then enjoy the new console with the existing pipes for 2-3 months. After that, the pipes will be removed for restoration (late July, 2015), and we will go back to using the electronic organ. The delay on the console should not affect the expected completion date of August / September, 2016, for the entire organ restoration.
