What good is a fair if there is no music?
Throughout the ages music of all kinds filled the fair grounds.
The coming of electricity meant that mechanical music could be played taking over from the many minstrels used before.
Over the years the fairground organs grew larger and larger and the quality of their music improved manifold. To fit the colourful surroundings their fronts were all styled up, sometimes displaying moving wood puppets representing an orchestra and painted with great imagination to the optical as well as accustical delight of the visitor.
During our Steam Spectacle we show several active concert organs in various locations. A sounding background to the event.
On Good Friday a spiritual concert is planned to take place in front of the basilica St. Kastor.
