Polishing Pipes

Pipes inside the gallery organ before they are removed for refurbishing.

David Berman, one of several workers from Quimby Pipe Organs of Warrensburg, Missouri, carefully wraps pipes from the Skinner organ in the gallery (choir loft) at the Cathedral of St. Paul Sept. 8. The organ is being refurbished and expanded as part of the cathedral’s $ 2.5 million “Sound Off” project, which also included the refurbishing of the smaller Skinner organ in the sanctuary. The expansion of the organ includes more pipes and new organ casework to complete the appearance of the organ façade as it was originally designed when it was installed in 1963. The three-year project is expected to be finished by Easter 2013.
