Our Pipe Organ

Polaroid-Organ.png

The organ is closest to being American Classical in disposition with some characteristics of the French Romantic tradition as well. The organ was rebuilt and assembled by the Pipe Organ Foundation of Mercer Island as their Opus 2.  It has been expanded somewhat since it was originally installed in 2005. Tonal design for the organ was by Clint Meadway in consultation with Cheryl Storey. Tonal finishing was by James R. Stettner and Clint Meadway.
