The Instrument's Condition

by Vic Ferrer on February 16, 2012

A recent assessment of the instrument’s condition by world renowned organ builder Jack Bethards of Schoenstein & Co. confirms the instrument’s restoration work is intact and unimpaired.

The console is in excellent condition and the large facade pipes are in cradles and covered by large sheets of neoprene.

While Friends of the Exposition Organ continue to keep a close eye on the instrument, we are concerned that time will provide opportunity for fire, flood or vandals to damage or destroy the instrument or restoration work.
