- music, Organs, world's largest
In admiring an Organ, there is always one bigger than yours.
In this case the Wanamaker Organ, located in Philadelphia at the Macy’s City Center, formally Wanamaker’s Dept. Store. Is the largest Pipe Organ in the world. (The Boardwalk Hall Auditorium Organ has more pipes but fewer ranks and at least 80% of the pipes have been unplayable for most of its existence. See below)
It is played at least twice a day Monday through Saturday, and more frequently during the Christmas season. The organ is featured at several special concerts held throughout the year, including events featuring the Friends of the Wanamaker Organ Festival Chorus and Brass Ensemble.
