Pipe Organ Anniversary
A series of lunchtime concerts featuring the renowned Van Diemen's Band, will be held in the Hobart Town Hall in the lead up to the 150th anniversary of the building's pipe organ. The hall's pipe organ, which was installed in 1870 and features 1926 pipes, will be played during some of the concerts.
Ten 45-minute concerts will feature a mixture of world-class musicians who are based locally, nationally and internationally.
To conclude the season, a celebration event will be held on Sunday 22 March 2020 to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the pipe organ’s installation in 1870. The event will feature one of Australia’s most accomplished pipe organists, Thomas Heywood, playing a variety of pieces that have featured in the Town Hall during the organ’s lifespan.
More details will be announced in the coming months.
There will be six more concerts in February and March 2020. More details will be announced in the new year.
