About the Concert

There are not many instruments that you play with your hands and feet at the same time. The organ is one of them. Actually, it's no wonder that you have to use your whole body to make such a huge apparatus sound. Our organ in the Palace of Culture has a whopping 4109 pipes! How to make them make music, what a stop is, what is hidden behind the strange word manual and much more you will learn in our school concert. Oh, and why is the organ actually in the concert hall and not in a church?
