Join us for a rare opportunity to visit a modern pipe organ factory here in Indianapolis. Tom Nichols, organist, musician, and associate with Goulding & Wood, will be our host/guide.
At the Indiana Landmarks Center we will see the restored Grand Hall (a former Methodist church sanctuary) and hear a demonstration that organ by Tom Nichols. Organ restoration by Goulding & Wood.
The factory tour will feature a current project - a rebuild of the 1928 two-manual 29-rank Möller organ for Irvington Presbyterian Church, which includes a new console and a vintage Tuba stop new to that organ.
Tom Nichols is the Director of Music Ministry at St. Luke Catholic Church on the north side of Indianapolis, a position he began in July 2013, and a representative of Goulding & Wood pipe organ builders, where he works in customer service. Previously he served for 17 years as the Director of Music & Liturgy and principal organist at historic St. John the Evangelist Church in downtown Indianapolis (home of a Goulding & Wood pipe organ built in 1989). You can read more about Tom in our meeting announcement on the Central Indiana AES Webpage.
