It is neither my habit nor my custom to read a paper to gatherings such as this; I prefer under such circumstances to extemporize from a few brief prompts, as I much prefer living spontaneity to prepared texts. But in this case I must depart from my habit and custom due to the importance not only of this occasion, but much more importantly, due to the importance of the time through which we are moving, and to the profound dangers posed to our western civilization and culture. This, I hope, will be received in the spirit in which it is intended, for each of you and many more, in donating to this virtual pipe organ crowdfund project, have made a dream come true for me.
The Pipe Organ Crowdfund Team includes some of the most imaginitive, insightful minds you'll find ANYWHERE:
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science, and "strange stuff". His book The Giza DeathStar was published in the spring of 2002, and was his first venture into "alternative history and science".
Chuck McCorkle is a Chicago native with longstanding roots in the legal community. As Vice President of McCorkle Litigation Services, Chuck has been passionate about integrating new technology to professions like court reporting, videography and legal software for nearly two decades. In 2015, Chuck co-invented and patented a mobile app for the convenient creation of Jury Instructions, saving precious hours for courtrooms and attorneys at the end of trial.
In his free time, Chuck enjoys helping at Chicago's Animal Welfare Center and serves on the board of Lovin' Life Rescue, a non-profit, companion animal rescue organization with a no-kill policy.

Congratulations We did it!!!!
We have raised $33,719.50 - above our target for all three phases. Any amounts that come in above our target amount will be used to fund insurance for the organ and musical scores for Joseph.
We hope to have a full report out to donors after Labor Day as we eagerly await the completion and delivery of Joseph's new organ.
The first phase will generate resources for the main system components; the complete console, software and adequate sound system. The second and third phase s will add a high caliber sound system and perform the necessary onsite pipe-by-pipe voicing by the manufacturer and organ builder, Chris Martin.
Desktop 3A total console price including Bavokerk, Mietke and Cavaill-Coll sample sets: $16,036.02
