The Young Organists’ Showcase is an important event in the NETOA diary, and its popularity is undoubtedly down to the incredible display of talent and commitment shown by the young people in carefully preparing their programmes. This year it is a pleasure to welcome back Matthew Hadley - the latest recipient of the Cinema Organ Society’s prestigious Ian Sutherland Award - along with his equally gifted sister, Johanna, at the pianoforte.
