We talk with Ms. Evelyn Gibbs, whose love for the Chattanooga Auditorium organ, and whose redoubtable perseverance, along with that of other members of the Chattanooga Music Club, saw to the successful restoration of the vintage Austin organ. The Chattanooga project was undertaken by the Milnar Organ Company, also involved in the relocation of the smaller of two Kimball organs from the Memphis Auditorium to Bartlett Church.
