In this excerpt from Pipe Dreams, talented young organists competing in the intense Canadian International Organ Competition (CIOC) in Montreal practice, practice, practice, and even do physical workouts.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

[energetic music]

The pieces I like to play I practice more...

But that's not the right way.

It is really important to get all pieces

on the same level before the competition.

I hope my nerves will be strong, really strong.

- [exclaims]

[vocalizing]

Listen much more to what you're doing.

- Mm-hmm.

- You are not completely...

surprising yourself, you know?

- Mm-hmm. - One more time.

Nick needs to bring out his...

Inner craziness.

[intense rock music]

- And ten. Good job.

[chuckles]

[applause]
