The largest musical instrument in Southern Hemisphere, Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ is to be amazed and marvelled at. Three of Australia's finest young organists in their mid-teens - Emily Cao, Austin Chen and Joshua Nah - will defy the physical and musical dimensions and masterfully handle10,000 organ pipes.

The concert will include Widor's Toccata and Bach's Toccata in D minor - as well as Mussorgsky's Great Gate of Kiev and works by Handel, Guilmant, Dubois, BoŽllmann, Vierne and more. You will be able to see the musicians and the instrument up close and personal on big screens fitted in the hall.

An exhibition displaying illustrated presentation on how organ was created, how it works and how it can be mastered will start at 1 pm. Organ Concert will take place straight after the exhibition.

After the concert, you are to join in the guided tour and enjoy the atmosphere when music just stopped but the echo is still lingering.

The place is Melbourne Town Hall. Time is 1 pm on Wednesday 1 August. Entry is completely free.
