The Boardwalk Hall organ -- also known as the Midmer-Losh and the Poseidon -- is the pipe organ in the main auditorium of Boardwalk Hall. It will play a starring role tonight in a concert with British organist Anna Lapwood.

A Little Background On the Boardwalk Hall Organ

With four entries in the Guinness Book of World Records, the main organ in Boardwalk Hall is a magnificent machine: the largest pipe organ ever constructed, the largest musical instrument ever built, and the loudest instrument ever made.

The organ has undergone an extensive $16 million restoration led by the Historic Organ Restoration Committee and is finally returning to its full capability.

Friday's concert should spotlight what an amazing instrument It is.

Who is Anna Lapwood?

Anna Lapwood is an organist, conductor, broadcaster, and the director of music at the prestigious Pembroke College, in Cambridge, England.

Today, Anna is one of classical music’s biggest stars, the musician the New York Times calls “the world’s most visible organist”. She regularly gets millions of views on TikTok with her late-night practice videos at the Royal Albert Hall, where she is an associate artist.

To put it mildly, Anna is excited about tonight's show. Here is her Thursday post on X, formally Twitter.

Today I got to spend 14 hours with this incredible organ, and I can honestly say I’ve never enjoyed registering so much in my life. What a mind-blowing instrument. Bring on the concert tomorrow!!!
