Organ move, renovation and upgrade

In early 2016 we were asked to relocate and completely renovate the 1970 E. F. Walcker organ from Sihler Hall, Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, IN. The new home for this organ, All Saints Lutheran Church in Charlotte, NC was embarking on a journey to upgrade their buildings and to add a pipe organ to their worship environment. The organ was moved to our facility and stored for nearly two years. In 2018 we completed the project. The scope of work was really all-encompassing and took nearly eight months to complete. At the end of this process, the organ is in a better-than-new condition, with all crucial components either completely renovated or replaced. The expected life span of such instrument is at least one hundred years with some very minor maintenance, making it a perfect investment!
