Warner Organ

The loft is located above the stage. Its 3,400 pipes are housed in a painted case made of hand-crafted solid African mahogany, with the Prestant pipes of each division comprising the facade. Warner Concert Hall is the principal hall located within the Conservatory of Music. Most of the required performances for organ majors take place in this hall.

Warner Concert Hall is also home to an organ built in the 17th-century Spanish style by Greg Harrold in 1989. It is located on a platform at the rear of the concert hall and features hand-pumped bellows.
