Jim Stettner on September 26, 2021:

Updated through information in a private text from Manuel Rosales (who moved the organ) to James R. Stettner on Wed., Sept. 23, 2021. -- The original home is USC music building, on the main campus. All of the practice rooms were in that building and they were gutted for other purposes. The University now leases a new building across the street; the first floor is retail and all of the practice rooms for pianos, organs and sound-proof modules for the “portable” instruments. Instrument was moved less than half a mile.
