Assuming your inquiry to be serious…..

I doubt that you will find a way to make a mostly-monophonic harmonica sound like a polyphonic organ.  I suggest that you pick a different Saint Seans piece.  “The Swan”  is beautiful on the harmonica.

Any approach that I can think of would be 99% electronics and 1% harmonica. When you go too far to make a harmonica sound like another instrument, you get an instrument with all of the limitations of the harmonica and without the charm of a true harmonica sound.  If you want an organ sound, then play an organ or an electronic keyboard.
