Simon Coture, vice president of Casavant Organs and project coordinator for the rebuild of Opus 408D at the Casavant shop is in town this week. He and Ken Axelson (organist at Johns Creek UMC) and Jeremy Rush (music staff at JCUMC) worked on preparations for the organ's arrival. These pictures were taken by Ken on February 24 and posted on his Facebook page.

And remember to "measure twice and cut once?"

I'm not sure what they're measuring but I assume it's details for the facade. I'll find out today if they are still using the design, or something like it, that we came up while I was still at JCUMC. Whatever it's going to be, it will be grand!!!
