Chuck Ford has been associated with our firm since 1983. After receiving his BA in Architecture from the University of Arkansas, he studied in Europe, before undertaking apprenticeships with the organ building firms of Kreienbrink in Germany, and D.A. Flentrop in Holland. While working with an architecture firm in Portland, Oregon that specialized in high-rise buildings, he decided to join our staff full time, and has been our Project Architect since 1992, designing most of our instruments since then. His interests in architecture, art, woodworking and music combined into a career in organ building, leaving a bit of time for the culinary arts and gardening. His most enjoyable challenge is tailoring a new design to harmoniously fit into a client’s particular setting.
