International Organ Day

Yesterday was the International Organ Day. More than 250 concerts was held around the world to showcase the King of the instrument! We were there in the Great Hall of Sydney Uni.(I was graduated in the same Hall 9 years ago) for the " Introducing the pipe Organ" to the kids! I've always love the majestic sound of the Organ and really enjoyed it! Youngman even had a play on the Organ .......

The Quardrangle of Sydney Uni. is such a beautiful place. They have one of the only two Carillons ( the largest by itself weighting over 4 tonnes) in Australia. We are very lucky to hear and then see the 54 Bells in action!

What a thrill it must have been to see and hear Gabriel up there! It truly is a beautiful, beautiful place. Maybe someday I'll get to see it and the rest of Australia as well.

We're proud of you Gabriel! :D

That was really special to hear him play the Organ. Initially, he did not want any of us to go up there with him......

( but i just went up there anyway after a while to make sure that he did not miss out on the occasion!)

That would be awesome Ginger! We got to meet up if you come all the way to down under!
