Organ History

At Glyndon Lutheran Church, we are proud and honored to have a Hook and Hastings Organ fill our sanctuary on Sunday mornings.  Hook and Hastings was one of the finest organ building firms this country has produced being known for their great tonal quality and their “butility” (beauty + utility).

Our Hook and Hastings Organ was originally built for the Norwegian Lutheran Church in Portland, ND in 1920 and Glyndon Lutheran came to own it in the late 1960s, buying from a private seller.

In January 2015, the process to begin restoring the organ was started. All funds were raised and the restoration itself took place in the summer of 2015. On October 11, 2015, an Organ Rededication Concert was held to showcase the work that had been done.
