This extremely handsome console stands behind a matching reredos of intricate detail. The new console controls a most unique combination of a 1971 Casavant and a 1984 Wicks. The relay system of the instrument was presenting problems and the church elected to replace the entire system and console to allow some expansion of the instrument.
The additions were installed to provide a more balanced ensemble as well as to increase the harmonic and dynamic range of the instrument. The overall result was a dramatic improvement in the blend and utility of the instrument.
