Ronald Shillingford Posted March 16, 2007 Share Posted March 16, 2007 I thought I would just fill those of u in who might be interested in news of Birmingham Town Hall and the Hill Organ when it will be heard again. We were informed by the people overseeing the restoration that the Organ Console was being returned to Brum in April and reinstalled. I am not quite sure what exactly has been done to it other than the fifth manual being removed and possibly a sequencer has been fitted. I also understand that the Organ will be worked on in the summer. It would be helpful if Manders could tell us what the work being proposed involves as some organ buffs keep telling me its another rebuild which I doubt very much. The hall will reopen in October 2007 and we were told Thomas Trotter's first solo Organ Recital on it would be Sunday October 14th 2007. So make a note of the date folks it promises to be a fabulous event. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
