Installed in 1967, the Noehren Organ was the lifetime dream of Minister of Music Emeritus Alex Post, in whose honor our Music Fund is named. Under the talented fingers (and feet) of organist Reiko Oda Lane, uplifting and spiritual music is performed nearly every Sunday. It is also used at weddings and during concerts throughout the year. The world-class organ is an important part of our church heritage.
Contact Reiko Oda Lane at 415-776-4580, extension 282 for an “inside peek” at this marvelous instrument.
