Built and installed in 1982, and designed by the late John Tyrell of the M.P. Moller Organ Company, formerly of Hagerstown, Md, the organ of St. George's provides the accompaniment to congregation and choir, as well as it is also used as a recital and practice instrument.  Situated in the choir loft directly above the West Doors of the Church, the Organ is housed in 3 separate chambers and features a striking silver facade crowned with a powerful Trumpet-en-chamade. The 3-manual console is built from hand-rubbed mahogany and uniquely features an unusual configuration of two separate Swell Divisions, located on either side of the loft. 
In 2014, the console was completely rebuilt by the Kerner & Merchant Company of Syracuse, NY.  All of the keyboards, stops, pistons, lighting, pedal tops were replaced to accommodate a new direct electric action.  The combination action is operated by the Matters Control System which allows for recording and playback, a piston sequencer, 99 levels of memory and more. In addition to electrical modifications, the 8’ Principal, 8’ Spillflote, 16’ Contrabass, and 16’ Subbass were revoiced.
