During the organ expeditions in the Sophienkirche, famous compositions and interesting facts about the history of the organ and its most important protagonists are presented in the form of conversational concerts in an entertaining and vivid way. The organ expeditions are directed to adults and children of school age and older who are interested in music.

It is not unlikely that the young Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, as a student of Carl Friedrich Zelter, knew and played the organ of the Sophienkirche. With the rediscovery of Bach's great works, but also with his own compositions, Mendelssohn helped the organ, which had received little attention as a concert instrument during the classical period, to regain its glory in the 19th century.
