The organist explained the acoustics of the hall and then played a wide range of pieces to demonstrate the abilities of the organ. And it is free. Plenty of room in the hall so don't sweat rushing to get in a line.

The tabernacle on Temple square can be visited. Also for concerts, see internet. It has 11.800 organ pipes. When the organ player is playing the sound is mindblowing.
