A Lutheran Church in Jacksonville is closing, and the building has been purchased by a Baptist Congregation. The baptistry will be constructed where the pipe organ is at present.
Because the Lutheran congregation is leaving the building soon, the pipe organ is free to any church. It is a Casavant 2 manual, 27 rank instrument which was built new in the 1970's.

The pipe organ installation at Suntree United Methodist Church,
(7400 N Wickham Rd, Melbourne, FL 32940)
is now complete. We need to find one or more parties interested in taking the remaining ranks of pipes, console, offset chests and miscellaneous parts. Thanks to so many generous souls, we passed the point of needing to sell anything and simply want to meet with the interested parties as soon as possible, so if you would share this information, we would greatly appreciate it! We will send a complete list on request.
Please contact Tom Taylor at 847-309-5338 for additional information
Our Dean recently received the following message.
"I, Martha Penne, am the trustee of my brother’s estate, who recently passed away. He had a Roland C-330 organ he purchased about 4 years ago. Do you know anyone that would be interested in purchasing this organ for $3,000? He paid $13,800 at the time. It has hardly been used and well maintained, as he used it to practice his music at home. Additionally, he has a huge collection of organ music books that we need to find a good home for. They include church music, Bach, Mozart, etc.
Photos of the Roland C-330 in its present installation are shown below. Please contact Martha Penne for further information of to discuss the possibility for purchase.
Please view the following YouTube videos for additional information.
The second link shows Hector Olivera performing the Bach, Short Prelude and Fugue in C Major, BWV 553 on the Roland C-330.
A friend of the CFAGO has written the following:
I have a beautiful Lowrey Symphonic Theatre Organ which is from way back that needs a good home. I am giving it away. My husband was a musician and played it daily for years and years. Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe there is a church or an organist who could enjoy it in his or her home? For additional information, please phone the present owner at (407) 351-9289 (Orlando in the Dr. Phillips area).
