The Clarence and Agnes Carlson Memorial Pipe Organ was built by Gober Organs of Elora, Canada. Hal Gober and his staff installed the organ in the spring and summer of 2002. The instrument was dedicated in September of 2002.
This wonderful organ is voiced precisely for the Bethany sanctuary. Organists of all levels express appreciation for the mechanical action, which allows greater control over the music by the performer. This organ easily transitions from music of the 1700s to music of today with grace and grandeur.
“The sounds this organ can make under the hands of a good performer are remarkable” - David Schrader, consultant to Bethany’s Organ Task Force and one of Chicago’s premier performers and pedagogues on organ, harpsichord and piano.
