First Congregational Church's 2,638-pipe Wicks-Buchanan Organ was built in 1995 by the Wicks Organ Company of Highland, Illinois,installed during Jane Wilmot's 25-year tenure as FCC's Music Director, and dedicated in recital by the late William Whitehead, who also served as the instrument's designer/consultant. By the Summer of 2015, numerous electronic systems were breaking down, and Jonathan Buchanan of "Opus-Two Instrument Control Systems" of Philadelphia (the same firm which recently re-wired the 26,000+-pipe Wannamaker Grand Court Organ in Philadelphia, and is now working on re-wiring and restoring to playability the seven-manual organ at the cavernous Atlantic City NJ Convention Hall), was contracted to re-circuit and re-wire the entire instrument, including both the organ and the console. In addition to his four-month repair and replacement project, Mr. Buchanan expanded and updated the instrument to include 99 banks of memory, a thoroughly programmable pedal divide, a multi-control piston sequencer, additional super couplers, 256 tracks of recordable play-back, and more. Now one of the more innovative, versatile, and advanced pipe organs in the country, the instrument is maintained by the A. Thompson-Allen Company of New Haven CT (curators of the Yale University organs).
