Promoting and preserving the organ in the Caird Hall, Dundee

The outstanding 3-manual and pedal organ in the Caird Hall, Dundee was installed by Harrison & Harrison of Durham in 1923 to the design of Alfred Hollins, the famous blind organist of St George’s Church in Edinburgh.

The instrument has been acclaimed as one of the world’s outstanding concert hall organs. It fits perfectly with the scale of the hall itself, designed by the city architect James Thomson and renowned for its marvellous acoustics. The organ was restored by its original builders in 1991–2, and it holds a Grade 1 Historic Organ Listing from the British Institute of Organ Studies (BIOS). It is one of the city’s cultural jewels, but many have never heard its magnificent sound. The Friends of the Caird Hall Organ aim to increase the instrument’s profile and to provide financial support that will secure its long-term future.
