Organ Update
Good news! The problem with the organ has been diagnosed, and it's a simple, inexpensive problem to fix: an electrical part needs to be replaced. It has been ordered and will arrive this week. We hope that the electrician can install it Saturday, but we may yet enjoy another Sunday with the piano!
