View the LIVESTREAM of this concert.

Indra Hughes has given more concerts on the Town Hall Organ than any other organist, and knows the instrument intimately, having been closely involved in its design and inauguration in 2011. A Fellow of the Royal College of Organists and a former Organ Scholar at the University of Oxford, he is well known in New Zealand and overseas through his work as an organist, conductor, and broadcaster.

For this concert he has assembled his most spectacular and colourful programme yet, culminating in Liszt’s epic, monumental masterpiece: the Fantasia and Fugue on “Ad nos, ad salutarem undam” – one of the most difficult and virtuosic organ pieces ever written. This concert will showcase the full range of the amazing Town Hall Organ, from its softest whisper to its loudest roar.
