“Go and attend an organ concert at this historic hall”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

Growing up in this area, I heard many times the name Serlo Organ, now called the Great Organ, but I never entered attended a performance until last evening. The exterior of the hall is rather unremarkable, but once you enter the soaring barrel shaped dome, elaborately decorated and housing one of the largest organs in the world, the hall and organ almost defy description. We were just fortunate to be able to attend the magnificent Wednesday night concert by Erik Wm. Suter of Maryland, one of a series of 15 concerts held from May to December. The history of how the organ was brought to the small town of Methuen by Edward Searles is a fascinating story of a true rags to riches individual who gave back to his birthplace. There are a Sunday afternoon concerts and special concerts for 4th of July and for the Christmas season. On site parking is free, there is a small gift shop and comfortable seating right in back of the organ and balcony seating also. Methuen is about 30 miles north of Boston off Rte 93 so is easy to access. If you have a chance to hear this spectacularly beautiful and wondrously sounding organ, go!

“WOW!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

You must go, at least once. The architecture is amazing. The organ is breathtaking. You can't believe that it is in Methuen! The concerts are reasonably priced. The sound is thrilling. Parking is available.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have attended numerous concerts here. The architecture is stunning. The building was erected specifically for the organ it houses. The sound is amazing. Being in the music hall adds to any epxerience.

“amazing !”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Everyone should go to the Methuen Memorial Music Hall at least once. From the outside it is does not look like much, just a brick building.... ahhh but the inside... amazing. So beautiful. Like stepping back into an elegant time. The organ is so large and the sound even larger. The sound is so amazing at every seat. There is a concert series every year, plus special events... try try try to go to one of them!
