Charles G. Barley Memorial Organ

Memorial Coliseum

Marion, IN

(played by Dr. Fred B. Binckes, FAGO)

(Note:  The renovation of the Barley Memorial Organ, Estey Opus 2727, was my first project, done over thirty years ago, while I was a student at Ball State University.  Since that time, the organ has remained playable until recently.  Presently, the building is under renovation, slated to become the Marion Family YMCA.   The organ is to be disconnected and stored in the building until funding can be found to completely rebuild it.  Although we did not create its sound, it is an impressive instrument, worth preserving, and we share some of Fred Binckes' 1976 recital here, in honor of this fine municipal pipe organ.)

Fanfare in D       Jacques Lemmens
Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring   J.S. Bach
