Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church, Evanston, Illinois Ernest M. Skinner Opus 327

We are proud to have been selected as curators of this important instrument and grateful for the trust that Dr. Christine Kraemer, Organist and Rev. Jeannette DeFriest, Rector have placed in us.  Recently there was ceiling damage in the Southwest corner of the Swell division.  The church chose to have this repaired.  In order to accomplish this, all nineteen ranks of the division were carefully removed down 45′ to the main floor of the church.  The chests were vacuumed, covered with heavy plastic sheeting and then covered with plywood.  The plasterers completely repaired the wall and the entire Swell division was reinstalled and tuned. This was accomplished in August 2017.
