The J.W. Walker Pipe Organ

The J.W. Walker organ installed in St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Lawton, Oklahoma, was blessed at a service of Solemn Evensong on June 7, 1992. The campaign to gift the church with this unique instrument began several years prior with members of Saint Andrew's and the wider Lawton/Ft Sill community coming together to raise the necessary funds. J.W. Walker & Sons Ltd. of Brandon, Suffolk England was contracted in February 1990 to plan, design, and construct the organ.

Beyond Sunday Eucharist, the Walker Organ, St. Andrew's has sponsored organ concert series featuring artists from the United States and England, and by organ students from The University of North Texas. In addition, numerous recitals have been presented by St. Andrew's Organist/Choirmasters' as well as concerts connected to Cameron University.
