Muscat: The centrepiece of the Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) is the grand pipe organ, which acts as the backdrop for most symphonic concerts there. But recently, the German-made instrument was the highlight of both a symposium and concert.

For the second year in a row, the ROHM organised two events to feature the pipe organ, which has over 4,500 pipes. Last week there was a symposium which featured pipe organ specialists, the builder, and a performance to accompany the 1926 silent film The General.

"The objective is to provide you with further information. We are trying to build a bridge between us as administrators and help you understand what we are selecting and presenting at the opera house," explained Dr Issam El Mallah, adviser to the Board for Programming and Events.

On the second day of the programme a pipe organ concert was held featuring an array of local and international musicians who played a variety of music, including jazz and classical compositions.
