Albert Hall will ring with the glorious sounds of organ music throughout Sunday afternoon.

The Mother’s Day Recital will feature Launceston organist Peter Schultz on the hall’s 158-year-old Charles Brindley organ. 

Now a yearly tradition, the two-hour recital is expected to draw hundreds of people to Albert Hall for the performance.

Mr Schultz plans on playing an eclectic mix of tunes on Sunday.

“I will probably play the Hallelujah Chorus, Nimrod by Elgar and maybe some popular sort of pieces by people like Scott Joplin,” he said.

“It’ll have a bit of a classical bent in there, because some people like popular tunes, but some other people like to hear the organ play what it, roughly, was meant to play. 

“The afternoon won’t be very church-y though, I don’t think.”

The recital will start at 2pm. Entry to the recital is by gold coin donation, with all proceeds going toward charity.
