Be swept into a musical wonderland with the finest classical and romantic music, including orchestral masterpieces specially arranged for the Concert Organ.

Heywood captivated Brisbane audiences when he reopened the Brisbane City Hall Organ with a sold out concert in 2014.

His international touring has included Russia, Hong Kong, UK, Europe, New Zealand, South Korea and USA.

He is a favourite of Australian audiences, and has performed 1700 concerts to over 600,000 people.

Heywood’s programme of “Masterpieces” will perfectly balance the sophistication and versatility of Brisbane’s magnificent Hill, Norman & Beard ‘Christie’ pipe organ.
