New York cathedral struggles to save the oldest US organ

The huge organ at St Patrick's Old Cathedral in New York City is the oldest one of its size in the US. But staff are concerned that the famous instrument might not make it to its 150th birthday next year. Church funds are low and there is a lot of work to be done on the organ. To celebrate the 150th birthday of the powerful instrument, they will be launching a fundraiser in order to gather money to fix it up.

Music director Jared Lamenzo, who has become as much mechanic as he is musician, shows Al Jazeera what it takes to keep the organ's pipes in tune.
