In order to mark the restoration of the organ in Freemasons' Hall a free concert of organ music has been arranged for Saturday, 27th March at 7.30 p.m.

The organ was built by Brindley and Foster of Sheffield, England, and is now approaching its 100th birthday. In order to have it sounding its best for that occasion the organ has been fully restored by the original builders. The work was partly funded by assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund to whom the Grand Lodge of Scotland is most grateful. The remainder of the funding came from a variety of sources not least from Freemasons far and wide.

The Grand Organist, Simon Nieminski, M.A., F.R.C.O., A.R.C.M., will present an exciting and varied program of organ music. One of the pieces will be the winning entry of the 'Organ Composition Competition' which will be performed in public for the first time.

Entrance is free to all but is by ticket only. To obtain your ticket, supplied on a first come - first served basis, please contact Freemasons' Hall (0131 225 5577).

A CD of music played on the organ has been produced. For more details click here or on the previous link.
