(back) Subject: You Are Invited (cross posted) From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Sat, 09 Jun 2001 10:55:10 -0400     --------------477C340D89CA612BD86CFB5D Content-Type: text/plain; charset=3Dus-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   Greetings   About a month ago I began to post about my invitation from Ken List to attend a concert at Severance Hall featuring the newly restored 94 rank E.M. Skinner performing 2 Symphonic works with the Cleveland Orchestra.   The unique feature of this invitation was that I would be INSIDE the organ chamber while the organ was being played helping Ken "baby-sit". I also got to help Ken tune some ranks by holding notes at the console before the concert, and I was able to take some great digital pictures of the pipe chambers as Ken gave me a tour.   I now cordially invite you to visit the website owned by my good friend Bruce Cornley who has very graciously provided space for me to present a report of the event, and a pictorial essay showing the beauty of the work done by the Schantz Organ Company to breathe new life into this historic instrument. Bruce's web site is listed below.   < http://members.tripod.com/Brucon502/index.htm >   The story is more unique because this is the first pipe organ I have ever seen, although I have studied them for quite some time. If the story doesn't interest you, at least visit to see the pictures. While you are there, visit the rest of Bruce's site and sign the guest book to let us know you stopped by. I also welcome your emails letting me know what you think. I worked very hard on the report, and tried to capture some of the drama to share with you. I can tell you that being inside a pipe organ sure beats the heck out of just seeing pictures of them.   Bruce suggests that you maximize your page when you get to the site to get the full effect. The pictures are large and take a moment or two to load, but I assure you are worth the short wait. Just click on the "SEVERANCE HALL ORGAN" link between the swinging bells. My report is divided into 2 parts, so after reading the Introduction, be sure to click on "The Organ From Within" link at the end of the Introduction to see the pictures.   Cheers Mike Gettelman   --------------477C340D89CA612BD86CFB5D Content-Type: text/html; charset=3Dus-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   <!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en"> <html> Greetings <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; About a month ago I began to post about my = invitation from Ken List to attend a concert at Severance Hall featuring the newly restored 94 rank E.M.
