Experience the grandest musical instrument 

PipeWorks will culturally enrich your school community by introducing young keyboard players at your school to the thrill and wonder of the pipe organ. 

Teachers, parents and scientific research all support the fact that children benefit greatly at an academic and social level from musical education at an early age. 

PipeWorks is a joint initiative of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne and the Australian and New Zealand College of Organists in partnership with the Music Program of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne. 

The Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne is blessed with an invaluable heritage of pipe organs, many located next to Catholic parish schools. PipeWorks aims to fully utilise these fascinating instruments as educational assets for children. 

PipeWorks also promotes wider educational opportunities for the broader community in an invaluable cultural endeavour. 

The PipeWorks program will be launched by the Archbishop of Melbourne, The Most Reverend Denis J. Hart, at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Cathedral Place, East Melbourne on Thursday 24 May 2018 from 10:30 am to 11:25 am. 

At the PipeWorks launch, young organists will guide their peers through a captivating presentation exploring music, culture, heritage, technology, science, history and maths, including performances of some of the most famous organ music ever written.
