Spectrum for 24 August 2014 - Unsung Heroes

From Spectrum, 12:15 pm on 24 August 2014

In a few small rooms packed to the ceiling with storage boxes, Robert Johnson and Lisa Young make sure the music happens for the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. It's their job to find that obscure piece of music or to handwrite notations into dozens of scores - and then rub them all out again after the performance. All this in an office space so overflowing with boxes that simply walking through it is an adventure. For Spectrum, Justin Gregory joins Robert and Lisa as they wash-up after one concert and also prepare for the next.
