See, hear and experience the magnificent 1877 Hill and Son Grand Organ in the Barossa Regional Gallery. Tour the inner workings of the instrument. Hear a short talk on its history. Taste the sounds of the Grand Organ in a demonstration.
Previously in the Adelaide Town Hall, this amazing instrument has been meticulously restored to original condition in Tanunda by the Organ Historical Trust of Australia and again contributes to SA community music making and entertainment.
The Hill and Son Grand Organ is the oldest concert organ on the Australian mainland and is notable for its impressive casework, tonal scheme and outstanding sound. With 3 manuals and pedals, 37 stops and 2,260 pipes, it is a South Australian music making icon.
The “Tour Talk and Sound Taste” is a unique Barossa experience!
