Over the past three years St. John’s Lutheran Church Bellevue, Ohio, completed a tonal redesign of its 4/53 organ under the direction of GT Organ Associates and J. C Wilson & Associates. St. John’s had planned an inaugural concert for May, 2020 that was cancelled due to the COVID pandemic.

In place of a rededication concert, St. John’s Lutheran Church is pleased to extend an invitation to you to set up a date and time for you to bring your music, come in and play, and explore the tonal possibilities that this organ possesses.  If you are interested, contact  Paul Lieber plieber08@gmail.com  (419) 217-7046.
