Skinner organ in Lyons to be restored

Jul 6, 2018

First Presbyterian Church in Lyons is a community gathering place noted for hosting ecumenical events and musical performances.  The church also has a beautiful old pipe organ that has fallen on hard times - a Skinner and Son organ from the 1920s.

The organ is on its way to be restored, by Parsons Organ Builders, in Canandaigua. Fundraising efforts for the restoration include a concert at the church by students from the Eastman School of Music on Sunday June 15th, 3pm. 

Read the story of the organ's restoration and more about the concert in "It's no pipe dream; Lyons organ to be restored" by Susan Clark Porter, from the Finger Lakes Times
