Itami (J) | Sun City Hall

Under a joint cultural exchange program between the cities of Itami and Hasselt (Belgium), the Japanese city acquired a concert organ which is the significant artistic feature of the Sun City Hall.

 

The organ with a mainly baroque specification also features an expressive Swell section, making it possible to interpret early romantic music and minor symphonic works.

 

The architecture of the hall played a decisive role in the choice of the organ layout, resulting in a classical organ with an expressive section to the rear and with free-standing, independent, pedal towers at either sides.

 

The rear panel of the expressive section has a secondary set of shutters made of crystal glass through which the pipework of the second manual can be seen by visitors from a gallery surrounding the hall.

 

Four hand cut panels decorate the front side, each representing a famous monument of a city in Flanders.
