The St. John's Lutheran Church Pipe Organ

The present pipe organ at St. John's was installed in 1979 by its builder, the Schantz Organ Company of Orrville, Ohio. Its specifications were designed in consultation with the late John Rotz, Organist and Choirmaster at St. John's. Two stops were added by the late Donald Hoyer and now five more stops and a Solid State Stop Processor with 99 levels of memory have been added by William T. Pugh.
