"Brian is an accomplished and polished professional in several areas of expertise.  I personally have experienced Brian as performer and organ builder/technician.  He it was who placed the large Berghaus organ at Trinity Lutheran Church in Akron, OH in excellent tune for my appearance on Trinity’s concert series.  I was also amazed by his mechanical and tonal expertise as he showed me the pipe organ which he built for his own personal use. 

As a performer, it has been my pleasure to hear Brian sit down to our large organ consoles at the Tabernacle and Conference Center on Temple Square.  He understands and performs a wide variety of musical styles, even pointing me to some useful pieces of which I had not been aware. 

My admiration for Brian as an accomplished and polished Christian gentlemen, loving husband and father also knows no bounds.   He and his lovely wife Laura are truly the “cream of the crop!”

"Brian is a documentary producer's dream - not only can he tell a great story, but he can do it in one take. His vast knowledge of all things pipe organ and his ability to share it with clarity and humor made my job easy; very little of his interview ended up on the cutting room floor! His willingness to perform on an historic instrument was also greatly appreciated and provided a beautiful soundtrack for that segment of the film."

"Brian Ebie's knowledge of the pipe organ is far reaching - from its construction to its history to its performance. His contributions to our research of the Barckhoff Organ Company in Pomeroy, Ohio were invaluable. We were confident Brian had his facts straight and would help us give an accurate account in our documentary. He did not disappoint! "

“Maggie and I are very pleased to have Brian joining the team. Brian’s knowledge of cone tuning and understanding of historic tunings, temperaments, and his ability to tune to them makes him the right man for the job. We think that bodes well for the future well-being of the Janke pipe organ.”

“What a privilege to enjoy the professional attitude and work for our Wicks Pipe Organ at Wedgewood United Methodist Church. Brian rebuilt the 1967 swell shutters as well as tuned dust encrusted pipes which had not been tuned in several years. It is with pleasure I can recommend his professional tuning services.”

“The Henry Pilcher mechanical action pipe organ at St. Joseph’s Church (1904) lay in quietude for years. Dr. Brian Ebie resurrected it to sweet sound by a major cleaning, renewing the leather pipe stoppers, tightening each mechanical linkage, many tunings, and multiple other deft repairs. An instrument once considered for removal is now once more a valuable contributor to worship. On May 3, 2015, Dr. Ebie accompanied by his wife, Laura Hoopes Ebie, presented an exciting organ and flute concert to an enthusiastic crowd at this historic church. St. Joseph’s Parish is deeply indebted to Dr. Ebie for his skill and devotion to this century old organ and in filling the church with the sound of organ and flute music. Music is the voice of God. Thank you Dr.Brian and Laura!”

“Brian Ebie tunes, repairs and updates the Trinity Lutheran Berghaus organ in Kent. He is passionate about making the instrument work properly and sound wonderful for all its varied uses. We feel fortunate to have a local person who is so knowledgeable and willing to help advise us and work diligently to correct problems both large and small.”
