About St. John’s Schultz Memorial Organ, Refurbished & Rededicated in 2017  

One of the great recent concerts in our Artist Series was the dedication concert that featured the exciting new sounds of St. John’s pipe organ held Nov. 5, 2017.  Nathan Laube, Asst. Professor of Organ at the Eastman School of Music, was the concert organist for the dedication of the Schultz Memorial Organ.  Also attending were guests from the Reuter Organ Company, who renovated the organ, and members of the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.   Click to read article about the organ in The Reporter 10-27-2017   

PBS station KTCU in Topeka, KS. produced a documentary segment about the Reuter Organ Co. & the restoration of the St. John’s organ.  This segment begins at 10:45 into the video. Click here for KTWU PBS Documentary Sunflower Journeys
