The organist explained the acoustics of the hall and then played a wide range of pieces to demonstrate the abilities of the organ. And it is free. Plenty of room in the hall so don't sweat rushing to get in a line.

The tabernacle on Temple square can be visited. Also for concerts, see internet. It has 11.800 organ pipes. When the organ player is playing the sound is mindblowing.

You could listen all day, but at noon you get a special treat someone different plays. Today's woman used both feet and played Familiar tunes.
