Organ
of the Month

Dear Allen Owners and Enthusiasts:

Over the past few months, we've shared many stories with you about recent Allen installations and have received many favorable comments about those articles. But, we know that many readers of e-notes play Allen organs of earlier vintages that have performed faithfully for decades and continue to do so. If you are the proud owner of an Allen organ that is more than 30 years old and would like to have your instrument featured in an upcoming edition of e-notes, please send us a photo of the organ along with any commentary you think readers might enjoy reading about the instrument and/or the congregation it serves. Please also feel free to send along some photos that date from the time of the organ's installation, especially if the organist is seated at the console. We'd prefer to receive the comments and photos in digital format. Please note that if you send hardcopies, they will not be returned.

Allen organs last a long time and there are literally thousands of 1970's and 1960's vintage Allen organs serving churches throughout the world. So, we may not be able to feature all of the responses we receive, but my intuition tells me that there are lots of great stories and photos to share. We look forward to receiving them!

Regards,
Barry Holben
