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.

The choir Cantastoria was formed in Ljungskile in autumn 2019. The name is inspired by the Italian tradition where messengers went from town to town and sang stories. In Gothenburg’s Concert Hall, they offer music by, among others, Maurice Duruflé and Hubert Parry, together with organist Kersten Cottyn, organist Benedetta Porcedda, pianist Lars Jansson and choir master Samuel Johansson.

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.
