6-28-2020 -A historic instrument originally built in 1878 in Salem, Massachusetts, the Kent Grand Organ will be the center piece for creating a destination for world-class performing arts at Kent Lutheran Church in the heart of downtown Kent. With a versatile design including 3303 pipes, the Kent Grand Organ will be a unique instrument in the region that will enable a wide range of musical programming to be offered: from classical to modern, solo organ to diverse ensembles.

Led by the fundraising efforts of a non-profit organization, “Kent Grand Organ”, the organ will be restored and installed at Kent Lutheran Church for the enjoyment of the congregation and community concert goers alike.

6/26/2020 – The console that will be placed in the balcony to play the Gallery Division separately is nearly complete. This console was originally built by G. Harold Keefer for a small organ at the University of Washington and has been completely rebuilt. The original ivory keys are wonderful to play on.
