UI Pipe Organ Going to Church

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- A pipe organ that faced demolition with a flood-damaged recital hall at the University of Iowa will instead be going to a church in Iowa City.
   The huge instrument will be dismantled, refurbished and then reinstalled at the new location of University Heights-based St. Andrew Presbyterian Church.
   Matthew Penning is director of music ministries at St. Andrew, and he says the organ is being donated by the contractor that will be tearing down Clapp Recital Hall. The hall was severely damaged in 2008 flooding.
   Penning estimates the organ's removal, cleaning, storage and reinstallation will cost the church $400,000.
