Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ
Originally built in 1929, the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ uses ninety thousand cubic feet of air every minute and can produce anything from a delicate whistle to deafening thunder. The Town Hall Grand Organ was lovingly refurbished and relaunched in 2001 and now contains drums, bells and almost eight thousand pipes across three town hall levels.
Melbourne Town Hall is much more than the seat of the city administration. It houses a large concert hall with a monumental organ that impresses visually at the front. The hall itself, with its three-sided gallery, is furnished in the opulent decorative style of the 19th century, for example with a coffered ceiling and floral elements. Visible from afar, the landmark of Melbourne Town Hall is Prince Alfred’s Tower with its large clock.

“Who needs an orchestra?” This is the title of one of Thomas Heywood’s more than 30 albums. Heywood’s huge repertoire of more than 5000 works includes not only the “”classics”” of organ literature, but also many of his own organ arrangements of symphonic orchestral works. As Australia’s first concert organist, Heywood travels extensively and is a regular guest in the USA and Europe. He also teaches at the Melbourne Conservatory and University and is the founding president of the Australian and New Zealand College of Organists.
