From Upbeat, 1:45 pm on 12 October 2017

The Auckland Youth Orchestra, along with soloist Rebecca Lee is on the road performing an organ concerto written especially for them.  Composer John Wells has created the work for Rebecca to play either on digital or pipe organ. He explains the technicalities and why Lee was the perfect soloist and what organ associations are doing to attract the next generation to this music.
