Rhonda Swanson, Assistant Organist, First Presbyterian Church, Nashville, TN, Co-coordinator, AGO 2012 National Convention:
"THANK YOU to all of you for your great work to ready First Pres’ Beckerath for the AGO National Convention. It was great to come to convention-week and know that the organ was in great shape, sounding marvelous, and ready for Ahreum Han. Thanks so much for your time during the convention week, too; I know this was a very busy time for you all! What a joy to share Ahreum Han’s success with you. I've received many comments about how we “saved the best for last – the best performer and the best instrument”, and I know that we could not have showcased Ahreum’s fabulous performance without your expertise. My deep gratitude to all of you for your energy, follow through, and excellent work. I hope you're all getting some time to relax and bask in the successful feeling of a job well-done."
Dr. Wesley Roberts, Professor of Music in Campbellsville, KY:
" I want to join Nevalyn in thanking you and the workers for the outstanding job each of you did installing the Trumpet-en-Chamade. It is a wonderful addition to the instrument and the chapel. University folk and visitors have already begun expressing amazement with both the visual and aural impact of the trumpets, and I know it will add much excitement to our programs and concerts for many years to come. Thank you very much for seeing this final leg of the project all the way through! And, thanks also for tuning the whole organ.
Please extend our thanks to all the Milnar team for the wonderful spirit which everyone displayed in working on this project. It was a pleasure to have each of you here and we will certainly look forward to future visits knowing that we have a wonderful group to work with. Blessings on all your future projects."
Evelyn Gibbs, Chair, Organ Restoration Committee in Chattanooga, TN:
"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for all you did to make the July 2 organ concert such a success! You worked hard and long on the organ, and I'm sure you felt good about the results. We have heard many, many wonderful comments about the organ and the concert. We appreciate the extra time and effort you spent on the organ, and especially your cheerful attitude at all times. I especially appreciate Todd's being in the organ chamber during the concert. I felt relaxed, knowing he was up there, ready for an emergency. However, he probably was deaf when the concert was over!
Again, my heartfelt thanks, and may God bless each of you as you continue your work, helping organists make beautiful music."
Jane Sharding, Organist of St. Peter in Memphis, TN:
"I thought you'd enjoy knowing that the Memphis Chapter AGO heard a wonderful recital by Paul Lee on the Kimball you re-birthed at Bartlett United Methodist Church. He really showed off all the bells and whistles with a wider variety of pieces and the organ sounded great! Jane Scharding: President, Milnar Fan Club"
Lester Seigel, Associate Professor of Music Chair at Birmingham Southern College:
"Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent job on the organ work at Canterbury. I certainly appreciate the care you took with the bellows, and for saving us a bit of money on the winkers. Of course, I greatly appreciate the timely manner in which the job was completed. I certainly look forward to working with you in the future."
Paul S. Frank, Pastor of St. Timothy Lutheran in Hendersonville, TN:
"We are truly grateful for your hard work and dedication which has in turn made this a beautiful edifice that gives tribute and praise to the glory of God."
J. Edward Culpepper, Administrative Pastor of First Baptist Church in Huntsville, AL:
"You have had a significant role in the long process of hard work and craftsmanship that has resulted in this joyous season, and we want to take a special opportunity to express our thanks. Thank you for your faithful work."
Cary Rutland, Chairman of Bldg Committee at First Baptist Church in Huntsville, AL:
"I want to thank you for the way you worked with us on the refurbishment of our organ during our recently completed renovation program. We had some very involved scheduling issues coordinating major construction, stained glass window removal / reinstallation and your organ work. I appreciate your cooperation and responsiveness to these special requirements. Your professional concern and care for our organ was obvious in your approach to the work, and we appreciated this effort by your team."
Janette Fishell, Organ Instructor at University Of North Alabama in Florence, AL:
"The positive comments regarding your work which came from members of the administration were so numerous that I wanted to let you know immediately! Once again, thank you for your excellent work."
Lee Green, Organist of Eastland Baptist Church in Nashville, TN:
"Thanks for the prompt repair of the Tremulant at Eastland. I really appreciate your scheduling of this repair so quickly."
Michael C. Moore, Attorney At Law and Substitute Organist of First Baptist Church Huntsville
" I would like to thank you and your men for the very difficult work which they performed in Iowa and the quick installation which you made here in Huntsville. I am sure no one else anywhere could have done the job your men have done. All of your technical abilities and expertise dazzles us every time you do work for us."
"Our work is about music, not about words. Only so much can be written to tell you about our commitment to musical excellence and our skills. We must rely on our work to speak for itself. We encourage anyone considering a new organ, the augmentation or rebuilding of an existing instrument to hear and play a Milnar Organ." -Dennis Milnar
