Construction Begins!

Construction to reinforce the area where the organ will be began on Monday, March 7! The pipes and organ console are still in Ohio, but progress is being made.

This construction is to reinforce the structure underneath the organ (pipes weigh a lot!). Also, walls absorb a lot of sound, so they will be making the walls more sound-resistant and less sound-absorbing. This way, the sound from the organ goes into the room and not into the wall.

Enjoy the pictures! (Move your mouse over each picture for a caption.)
