The Park Performing Arts Center, Union City NJ was built in 1931 and has been dedicated to the Arts of the community ever since. The three manual twenty rank orchestral Möller pipe organ was installed in two pipe chambers containing 1,390 pipes plus a 25 note chime and a beautiful 61 note Deagan Harp. The organ interacts with the wonderful acoustics of the Park to create a very good sonic experience.
This pipe organ created the perfect accompaniment for the long and still running famous Passion Play which is performed every Lenten season. It is the oldest Passion Play in America, in Union City, NJ since 1915. Unfortunately, over the years the organ required care and was not used.
In April 1991 GSTOS signed a contract to maintain the Möller. A dedicated crew have spent many hours on repairs. Special credit and thanks go to George Fenn, Eric Fahner, George Pasquaye, Jeff Barker, George Toth and our present Crew Chief Martin Boehling. --Source Feb 1998 GSTOS Newsletter
