Muscat: A Pipe Organ concert is all set to take place at the Royal Opera House (ROHM) this week.

The Pipe Organ that graces the stage at ROHM will come alive with a beautiful rendition of Camille Saint-Saëns’ majestic "Organ Symphony". The concert will be led by the renowned British organist, pianist and conductor, Wayne Marshall along with the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra.

While the Pipe Organ, “the king of instruments”, is still used predominantly as a liturgical instrument, it also graces many concert halls, as it does the ROHM with beautifully decorated pipes on its façade set within a wooden cabinet that blends seamlessly into the timber decoration of the auditorium. Along with its importance in the iconography of the ROHM, the also organ serves as a versatile instrument with a gorgeous and diverse range of sound admired by top-notch organists who have played it over the past six seasons at ROHM.

Artiste Wayne Marshall has the rare distinction of being equally adept as a musician and as a conductor. One of the most celebrated organists of our time, he is also the Chief Conductor of WDR Funkhausorchester in Cologne, Germany and serves as a guest conductor for Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, as well as for several other symphony orchestras. As a solo organist and pianist, Marshall performs recitals in a range of music genres at some of the world’s most prestigious venues with orchestras such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Berlin Philharmonic and the London Symphony Orchestra.



ROHM’s pipe organ concert will take place at the Royal Opera House Muscat on Wednesday, 25 January, 2018 at 7 pm.
