Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ

 
Have you ever wondered what air sounds like? Experience the grandeur of the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ.

Originally built in 1929, the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ uses ninety thousand cubic feet of air every minute and can produce anything from a delicate whistle to deafening thunder.

It was lovingly refurbished and relaunched in 2001 and now contains drums, bells and almost ten thousand pipes across three Town Hall levels.

Why not go behind the scenes? For a closer look at the organ chambers and the Grand Organ Museum, book in for a free Melbourne Town Hall tour.

The City of Melbourne's Grand Organ music program presents:

  • virtuosic solo performances of classical organ music spanning over four hundred years
  • orchestra and band concerts performing with the organ
  • new jazz pieces written specifically for the Town Hall instrument
  • opportunities to see the instrument from the inside.

Best of all, most of the events are free.
