The Queen of the Concert Hall, the magnificent organ, turns one year old! The one-year anniversary is celebrated during a full day of song and organ marathon. Come and hear West Swedish choirs and our top organists fill the hall with sounds in five unique concerts sunday 23 October.

When chamber choir Bergaton from Falköping takes the stage in a concert together with organist Samuel Eriksson, the programme will include music by Otto Olsson and George Rathbone. Conductor: Annika Lagerqvist. Bergaton is a mixed chamber choir that primarily sings traditional sacred choral music, but also collaborates with orchestras and soloists.

Also take the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Götaplats foyer before or after the concert and feast on star pastry chef Fredrik Borgskog’s unique pipe pastry, specially made for the organ’s first anniversary.

Orgelns spelbord står på podiet. Ett rött ljus fyller scenen.

The new concert hall organ with its 9 000 pipes is behind the stage and the vibrations from the bass pipes extend under the floor all the way to the middle parquet.
