CATHEDRAL CHURCH OF ST ANDRE...

Save our organ!

The Cathedral’s Æolian-Skinner is the largest pipe organ in Hawai‘i and is a major asset to the musical life of Honolulu. In addition to cathedral worship, the organ is essential for weddings, concerts by visiting artists and over 30 community groups, and for the worship and traditions of the St. Andrew’s Schools.

Under the stress of six decades of heavy, continuous use and various assaults ranging from a leaking roof to termites, the organ is in serious disrepair. Due to roof leaks in 2006, 549 pipes are unplayable. A recent inspection found an additional 166 silent notes in other parts of the organ. Electrical problems in the termite-ridden console cause not only additional dead notes, but even notes to play at random on their own! The organ remains playable only though frequent and expensive repair of the most critical failures one by one. Without a thorough restoration, this instrument is likely to become unusable within a few years.
