Welcome to episode 28 of Secrets of Organ Playing Podcast!
Today's guest is John Higgins from Whyalla, South Australia, a mechanical engineer by profession, who is so much in love with pipe organ that he plays recitals and tries to raise funds to restore valuable historical organs in his community. Because of his passion he quickly becomes the go-to organist in his area.
In this conversation, John reveals his background story, the things which he finds challenging in organ playing, and of course the dreams which through his persistence, generosity, bravery and connection little by little are becoming a reality. This is a truly inspiring story.
