The concert for the festival will be held in Melbourne Town Hall and will feature the Grand Organ (settle down basses, stop snickering...). 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.

We’re incredibly excited to be able to include this gorgeous instrument in our concert on January. If you’re in Melbourne at any stage between now and the start of MIV, why not go and check out the organ and our venue. You can learn more about Town Hall tours at here.
