Free Organ Concert Series 2024

Free Organ Concert Series 2024

12 May - 17 Nov 2024


Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall

The Auckland Live Free Organ Concert Series is back bringing another year of music from the majestic Auckland Town Hall Organ, New Zealand’s largest concert hall organ.

Since launching in 2010, these annual concerts have attracted thousands of music lovers, young and old. The heritage-listed Auckland Town Hall and its larger-than-life pipe organ were inaugurated in 1911 when the building was officially opened.

The instrument had been donated by Sir Henry Brett, former mayor of Auckland with a condition of “a certain number of performances be given to the public free every year”, a task which now falls to the Town Hall Organ Trust who, in partnership with Auckland Live, are responsible for presenting four concerts each year, often bringing the world’s top performers to the city.

Join us and experience the Auckland Town Hall Organ in all its glory in one of Tāmaki Makaurau’s iconic landmarks. All the concerts are free but require an entry ticket, booked through Moshtix. You can support the Town Hall Organ Trust in bringing you these free concerts with a donation. There will be collection buckets as you exit the Great Hall on the day.
