EVENTS

ELIAS J. HALLING MEMORIAL ORGAN
On March 7, 1969 our organ was dedicated as the Elias J. Halling Memorial Organ, with a recital given by Dr. Kim Kasling of Mankato State College (now MSU-Mankato).

Our organ contains pipes and operating equipment from 1938 to the present time. It is a tribute to the quality of the very complex equipment in the organ that it is reliably operational in all aspects. The value of this organ to our congregation is priceless.

This instrument is truly an asset to worship services and numerous events at Grace Lutheran Church, with 41 ranks and 2411 pipes, playable from a three-keyboard console. With great pride we care for it and see to its needs with regular check-ups by the Hendrickson Organ Company of Saint Peter.

Mr. Halling was a gifted music professor and choir director for 37 years at Mankato State University who joined the congregation in 1937. He was honored by Mankato State by the naming of the recital hall in the Earley Center for the Performing Arts the E.J. Halling Recital Hall.
