2014 Indy POE tour

On Friday, June 13th, students from the Indianapolis Pipe Organ Encounter came to G&W for lunch and a tour of the shop. We were glad to show the next generation of organists some of what it takes to build an organ, and we were all impressed by their insightful and curious questions. Even though we are still in the early stages of our next opus, they could see our slider chests model in the office and then see the real chests under construction in the shop.

To end the tour, students were each given the chance to take an old wooden pipe from a set we are not going to reuse. Whether or not they were played on the bus ride to the next church remained out of our control...
