Barrel Organ Serenade

A party atmosphere will prevail around large and small organs at the Barrel Organ Serenade on 25th February 2023 in the Technik Museum Speyer. Surrounded by a space shuttle, vintage cars and aircrafts, the museum's Space Travel Hall offers a unique setting for this event. For it is the contrast of nostalgic and futuristic technology that gives this concert its unique flair. The programme starts at 7 pm. From the small barrel organ to the fairground organ, a wide variety of instruments will be able to be heard on this evening. Classics will meet pop hits, and both singing along and swaying are expressly desired. The meeting point is the main entrance of the Technik Museum Speyer. From there, the musical procession will move through the exhibition halls. In addition to the pieces played, there will also be a night tour and an all-inclusive catering package. Tickets are available for €27. If you would like to play along with your own barrel organ, you can register with the museum to do so.

Members, staff and friends of the museums are lending their support to design the programme. Of course, Sina Hildebrand (sound artist) and Horst Thome (consultant for mechanical music) will be joining us again. The two of them will lead everyone through the programme and will also get some sounds out of an instrument or two. "We are very much looking forward to celebrating a real barrel organ party with many like-minded people from all over Germany and Switzerland," enthuses museum president Hermann Layher. The in-house catering team will provide sustenance with delicious dishes and wines from the region.
