St. James to be open, providing music during Bardstown Road Aglow

The historic pipe organ of St. James Church in Louisville was built by an unknown builder in the 19th century. It was  installed in St. James after 1912 and rebuilt by Louisville’s Henry Pilcher’s Sons during the Great Depression in 1931, and enlarged to more than 2,200 pipes by Webber-Borne Organbuilders in 2012.
