Updated by Tyler Cooper, who maintains the organ.
The organ is occasionally used by the School of Music on various concerts to accompany ensembles such as the WVU Symphony Orchestra and the WVU Wind Symphony. The organ gets used in a performance setting on average of four times a year. When not in use, the entire organ is moved into its storage room off stage right. All four divisions, as well as the main console, reside in this room. To move each division, an electric Cushman brand stage tractor is used to tow and nudge the platforms into place.
