This is the personal page of Timothy Patterson.
It also has links to my organ work.
There is no organization to it at this time.
It is only here to satisfy the curiosity
of my family, friends and share myself.

(It is nowhere near done, and never will be.)

My Associate, Olivier GLANDAZ in Paris FRANCE.

This is one of my favorite works of all time.


This is one of Picasso's more controversial works. In 1986, this painting went on the auction block and a Japanese collector paid $38 million for what he believed was one of Picasso's startling interpretations of the wiener dog. Shortly thereafter, however, several experts came forth to challenge the paintings authenticity. New estimates now place the work's value somewhere between $14 and $22, most of that amount being attributed to the nice frame.

Biography of Timothy Jon Patterson

Timothy Jon Patterson was born in Minneapolis, MN. in 1954. He studied piano with Chei Teragawa and organ with Jim Reily. His youthful interests were varied with focus on technical curiosities. These interests converged and allowed Tim to focus toward the pipe organ. His first pipe organ project was a two manual and eighteen rank pipe organ for Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Minneapolis. He opened an organ shop in 1975 as a profession. After several installations, he became associated with Geoffrey Hunt in 1981 and spent seven years rounding out his organ building skills. With Mr. Hunt he learned pipe making and casework design. Tim left Mr. Hunt and began a college degree program that concluded in 1992 with a B. S. in Computer Science and Industrial Education from the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. Tim graduated with Highest Senior Honors and was inducted into the national honor society of Phi Kappa Phi. Today he continues his pursuit of pipe organ building as President of Associated Organbuilders GLANDAZ-PATTERSON in St. Paul, MN. Tim has evolved the firm's capabilities to include flue and reed pipe construction, pedal and keyboard construction, and chest and casework construction. Tim has personally designed and built over 150 ranks of pipework. His latest development is an electro-mechanical valve action that was granted a patent in August of 1996. One of his most noted achievements is the Festive Trumpet on 30" of wind pressure at The Cathedral Church of St. Mark, Minneapolis. His latest installation is a three manual and eighteen rank pipe organ at St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Sunfish Lake, Minnesota. Since 1995, Tim has been involved in organ restoration and service in France. He is the only American organ builder allowed work on the historic instruments of France. He travels to France three times each year to work with Olivier Glandaz, traveling the entire country performing their work. Tim is an active member of the Twin Cities American Guild of Organists and has held a board seat with the Guild. Tim is also a contributing author to the TCAGO magazine Pipenotes.
