About The Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ is the largest Grand Romantic Organ in the Southern Hemisphere
Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ cover
Description Originally built in 1872, 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.

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

- virtuosic solo performances of classical organ music spanning over hundreds of years

- orchestra and band concerts performing with the organ

- original contemporary works written specifically for the Town Hall instrument

- opportunities to see the instrument from the inside

Best of all, most of the events are offered free of charge
