The Albert Hall is one of Tasmania’s most significant historical buildings with its heritage value attributed to the Classical Victorian style of monumental public architecture.
The Brindley Air Organ, situated in the Great Hall is Australia’s largest surviving organ pre-dating 1860. Built of local timbers including Blackwood and Huon Pine, the organ’s bellows are lined with original kangaroo skin; the organ is believed to be the only one of its type in the world when installed in 1892.
The ability to play evocative music on this historic organ is now enhanced with a portable stage from Select Staging Concepts – designed and made by Australians to help preserve Australian history.
The effective and simple to erect PILOT stage podiums allow the organist to be seated at the right height and with room to move and perform. Additionally, the black timber stained PILOT podiums blend aesthetically with the elegant surroundings.
