The organ is called the “queen of instruments” and for a good reason: no other acoustic instrument is so varied in sound and dynamics, from the weakest, solitary tone to massive chords that make it vibrate in floors and walls. Finally, it’s time to experience just this in the Great Hall when the sound from the more than 9000 organ pipes fills the room. Powerful!
