    Later this month the royal australian airforce band will be performing Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture with pyrotechnics and cannons backed with the town hall organ. WOW! I will be there. Check out the organ.

    Hey Y man . . And any other melbournians. You need to go! Its a free concert on in 3 sundays from now. I have heard this organ and it is phenomenal. The sound shakes the whole building and you feel vibrations though the floor and seats.

    Yeah but can it do a decent Leslie Effect? :D :eek:

    Seriously though. That's a pretty impressive set of pipes.

    Reminded me of this one I saw when I lived in Montreal.





    Quebec is lousy with churches and pipe organs actually.

    A strong Catholic tradition in the province has led to just about every church and cathedral having a similar brute installed.
