Grand Organ Gala at the Royal Albert Hall

Published: Tuesday 24th of June 2008

The Grand Organ in London's Royal Albert Hall is one of the largest pipe organs in the UK and was built by Henry Willis in the late 1800s before being rebuilt six years ago by Mander Organs.

On June 28th 2008, the Grand Organ Gala, which first took place on the restored organ in 2004, will be held at the Royal Albert Hall once more,.

Describing the event as "a magnificent evening", the Royal Albert Hall claims that the night will serve to demonstrate "the power and majesty of the king of instruments".

A full orchestra and choir as well as soloists will also perform at the event.

Whether or not London Pass holders choose to attend the Grand Organ Gala – which will feature Strass's Sunrise from Also Sprach Zarathustra, Zadok the Priest, Hallelujah Chorus by Handel and Bach's Toccata & Fugue, not to mention a rousingly British rendition of Elgar's Land of Hope and Glory in the second half – a visit to see the pipe organ at the Royal Albert Hall is a must for any visitor to England's capital.
