About Lunchtime Organ Concert: 190 Years of Town Hall

In a special concert marking 190 years of Birmingham’s Town Hall, City Organist Thomas Trotter is joined by architectural historian and building conservation expert, Anthony Peers. Between 1999 and 2007 Anthony served as Project Historian to the £35 million scheme to revitalise Birmingham Town Hall and his resulting book on its history was published in 2012 to critical acclaim, being one of the seven British projects cited in the European Union’s 2013 Europa Nostra Awards. Anthony is Deputy Chairman of Historic Buildings and Places (formerly the Ancient Monuments Society).

Birmingham City Organist since 1983, Thomas Trotter is one of the world’s top-ranking virtuoso organists and was awarded the 2020 Queen’s Medal for Music. His fortnightly lunchtime concerts last around an hour and showcase the organ’s sublime delicacy and awesome power – as well as his own technical wizardry – in some of the most inventive programmes you’re ever likely to hear.
