Duquesne University Mary Pappert School of Music

Secondary Teaching Studio Organ

Aeolian-Skinner opus 1508 (1968). Acquired by Duquesne in 2003 the organ was severely loud for the room, even on low pressure. The IV Mixture and chamade portion of the 8' Trompette have already been removed. The Mixture was reemployed on the Great of the Teaching Studio organ in the summer of 2014.
