Mailbag: “Walcker”

April 27, 2006

Dear Michael,
Is the Walcke company still building organs? I’v played some fine examples of their art over the years but their web site is basically historical and I don’t see a current projects list other than restorations.

Dear Jim
Did your finger miss an ‘r’ in your message above? If you mean the E. F. Walcker firm (of Germany), they are…to my knowledge…no longer in business. One of their last projects was at the Methodist Temple in Evansville, Indiana.
