The present building was completed and a 32 stop, 3 manual organ built by the Vottler/Holtkamp/Sparling Company of Cleveland was installed in the church. This instrument was a gift of the Carl Edson family.
A new instrument of 34 stops (43 ranks) distributed over three manuals and pedal built by Walter Holtkamp, Sr., was installed at a cost of approximately $42,000. This instrument was envisioned by St. Peter's organist and director of music, Professor Fenner Douglass, who worked closely with Mr. Holtkamp in designing an organ which would reflect the essential elements of the Organ Reform Movement as it took shape in mid-twentieth century America.
Some refurbishing of the organ's wind sysem and a complete replacement of the memory system with technology designed by Solid State Logic Corporation of Alexandria, Virginia was unddertaken by the Holtkamp Organ Company of Cleveland. the cost of this work was $16,100 and it was funded from the Music and Light Fund of St. Peter's Church. The replacement value of the St. Peter's instrument is well in excess of $340,000.
