Tne magnificant E.M. Skinner Pipe Organ at the Stambaugh is going through the final restoration phase – testing to eleminate any bugs.

The pipe organ at Stambaugh Auditorium was built by E.M. Skinner Co. It was designed to be integrated into the design of the auditorium and was installed in 1926 as part of the construction of the hall.
The organ is considered to be one of the finest and largest organs ever made by the Skinner Co.
It has 3,847 pipes, ranging from the size of a pencil to 30 feet high. The pipes are arranged in two wooden cases on either side of the stage.
