Welcome to the home page for the Friends of the Hill & Son Grand Organ, a painstakingly restored late 19th Century mechanical pipe organ housed in the Barossa Regional Gallery in Tanunda, South Australia.

The Friends of the Hill & Son Grand Organ are a group of like-minded music lovers who help to maintain, promote and contribute to the rediscovery of this great musical artefact. We hold concerts and events not only with the Hill & Son Grand Organ, but also across the many other beautiful pipe organs in the Barossa Valley, South Australia.

On these pages you can learn more about the Hill & Son Grand Organ and its restoration, and view a gallery of beautiful images alongside short clips of the organ in action. You can also find out about upcoming events being held by the Friends of the Hill & Son Grand Organ, as well as information about contacting us and becoming a member.

Thank you for visiting our site, we look forward to meeting you!

Messiah!!

Thank you to everyone who came to the Adelaide Harmony Choir’s rousing performance of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ on Sunday, 25th of March. A stirring performance by the choir, the soloists, and our very own Andrew Georg on the organ saw the audience leave in high spirits as they moved into Holy Week!

If you would like to see more images from the concert (like the one on the left), please visit our Facebook page.

Our next concert is “Reflections on the Easter Journey”, presented by the Valley Voices Choir and featuring Andrew Georg once again on the Hill & Son Grand Organ. Join us on Sunday 22nd of April for a concert filled with beautiful music!

Then, in May we are heading to the flicks for “A Night at the Silent Movies”, accompanied by the Hill & Son Grand Organ. This event for SA History Month is sure to be a fabulous evening of amazing music and lots of laughs and smiles.
