This musical marvel is somehow constructed out of stops, bellows, pedals and pipes. It’s made of a dizzying combination of woods, metals, leather, and electronics. How do these parts fit together? How can one organist play 7000 pipes at once?
Each session gets up close and hands-on with the King of Instruments and can be tailored to fit your specific needs, emphasising any of these themes:
- Science of sound and acoustics: how sound is made and travels
- Building blocks of music: pitch, rhythm, timbre, harmony, melody variations
- Music through the ages: how music and the instrument has developed across time
Workshops are led by Southbank Centre’s Organ Scholar or Organ Curator.
The total cost of Pipe Up Schools is £50.
