Peggy Reinburg and Xaver Wilhelmy, who was entrusted with cleaning and renovating the Skinner organ, will lead the workshop that will take place on Saturday Sept. 16 from 10 a.m.-noon and 1:30 p.m.4 p.m. in Old Cabell Hall. The workshop will include a presentation on the restoration project, a tour of the organ and a demonstration of suggested registrations appropriate to the Skinner organ.

The Skinner organ was originally built in 1906. It is the earliest extant organ that remains as originally designed and built by Ernest M. Skinner. The original construction of this organ was made possible by a gift to the University from Andrew Carnegie. The restoration work was funded in part by a generous contribution from William R. Piper, '77, to the McIntire Department of Music. The upcoming workshop is co-sponsored by the Charlottesville Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. For tickets or further information, contact the Cabell Hall Box Office at (804) 924-3984.
