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
