The original 1934 Aeolian-Skinner organ at First Presbyterian Church was modified by the same firm in 1955 when the church moved to a new building. The original console was modified and some of the stops changed to add brilliance and transparency.

By 1989, mechanical failures were more and more frequent and the combination action was unreliable. After careful consideration, the church decided to undertake a wise renovation of the organ.

The console has new stop jambs, draw knobs, and the latest Solid State combination action and switching system. Some Pitman chests were re-leathered and reconditioned, while others required replacement. All the pipework was cleaned and regulated and new casework and facade built to match the room’s design.
