Luther Memorial’s organs
Music at Luther Memorial has a foundation in the magnificent sound of its organs. The church has three pipe organs:
- A 56-rank Austin organ built and installed in the rear balcony in 1966
- A 1893 Steere and Sons tracker action organ of 19 stops, restored and installed in the east transept in 1997
- A 1986 Bedient portative organ of three stops
