Organ Funds Sought
The 1904 Cole tracker organ's leather bellows, pipes and keys produced music to our ears recently as 96 y.o. Emily Floyd played a few tunes for us. Camilla Cai warmed up the keyboard, levers and peddles and then Emily sat and played, just like she did the last time the organ was played, c. 1994. The organ recently had a check-up and was pronounced fit to play, but in need of a tuning. The tuning estimate is $600 and we are taking donations to coer the tuning costs. See the story here.
