For most people who’ve visited St Andrew’s on the Terrace in Wellington, the organ is the contraption seen at the front of the church. But there is another much larger instrument at the back.

The church's Croft organ has been undergoing restoration and now, four years and at nearly $500,000 later, the work is complete.

Roy Tankersley, organ consultant for the project, talks with Upbeat about what was involved and about the celebratory concert taking place this weekend.
